Hopeful 2021 – Pam goes travelling

Right here’s the primary publish of the 12 months, and we’re already within the third month of 2021. Normally, my first publish can be up by February as I wish to preserve my perspective and resolutions as recent as doable. However nicely, plans change as I received busy. :p 

Though it has been greater than a 12 months of not with the ability to pull the passport out of my journey pouch, I’ve been busy. Busy in a fruitful approach. 

Earlier than I get into my hopes and resolutions for the 12 months, let me replace what has been taking place lately. 

Q1 2021

First off, I’m happy to announce that I’m Covid-19 vaccinated! Woot~ Which suggests I’m a step nearer to getting in another country.

I’ve been toggling between my work as a frontliner and side-hustling as a information. I additionally get to spend some high quality time with household and pals. Typically over meals and generally over exploration. I’m glad that my present routine permits me to get pleasure from off days on weekdays and weekends. – better of each world!

I’ve been exploring extra F&B institutions these days and eyeing on going to extra to have a tasting of the whole lot. Meals tasting is a type of travelling as I discover completely different cultures, spices and cuisines with each chunk. Apart from, it’s extra fulfilling once I get to do it with pals, catching up over a meal or a drink. The advantage of this pandemic is that it retains my pals in Singapore; thus, we have now extra time to satisfy up! 

I foresee that this can proceed all by Q2 and Q3. Maybe solely in This fall issues might begin to change (for the higher, that’s)!

2021 resolutions

I mull over the resolutions I’m setting this 12 months for a very long time. I wish to set real looking targets. Decision is like KPI (Key Efficiency Indicator) to have a purpose to work in the direction of and in addition to maintain me in test. With travelling out of the equation, the decision will not be about undertaking objects in my bucket listing however as a substitute refocusing on myself and set quantitative targets to measure in opposition to. 

1. Learn 15 books

Be it e-books or bodily books. I hope to deviate from my traditional style of journey memoirs, romance and historical past into different genres. I wish to achieve some priceless data from them.

2. Preserving match

I’m splitting this into two components. One, specializing in the cardio exercise to burn the energy whereas the opposite targets the physique.

a. Run/ Brisk Stroll 200km

If I sustain with my exercise routine, that is an achievable goal. 200km is the minimal goal that I must be reaching — offered if I don’t develop harm, irritation or something that may deter me from operating. I attempt to preserve my runs underneath 10km. Sometimes 4 to five km every time, as my problematic legs will begin protesting if I work them tougher than I ought to. 

b. 25 hours of static exercise

It really works out to barely greater than 2 hours monthly. The exercise consists of all of the yogas, stretching and power coaching that I’ve been doing. Lately I’m including pilates into my exercise repertoire. In all honesty, it looks as if a straightforward peasy process to fulfil. Nevertheless, contemplating that I’m doing them alone as a substitute of going to lessons, every spans between 20 – 45 minutes as a result of this lady has a brief consideration span! 

3. Discover & begin a course!

A mid-life profession change is the excitement phrase proper now. As we change into wiser and achieve completely different life experiences, we begin to search new passions and have new milestones. 

I’m able to ignite that intrinsic motivation, discover pleasure (and sometimes some hatred contain) in studying, achieve the data and credential to pave the best way for one more doable profession path. It’s time to seek for one other pasture. 

In the meanwhile, I’m not precisely positive which path I wish to go. I would like to start out exploring and slim down from the limitless choices and potentialities. As soon as I’ve nailed it down, time to search for a course and embark on the training journey. 

So simply three resolutions. They appear fairly well-attainable! 

Feeling Hopeful

The theme for this 12 months is HOPEFUL. I’m hopeful about many issues. I’m assured that I’ll accomplish my resolutions, optimistic in regards to the covid state of affairs world-wide with the on-going vaccination. I’m feeling optimistic about the whole lot. 

Lately, there’s a handful of mood-lifting travel-related information. Journey plans could also be doable by the second half of the 12 months, and air journey bubbles might quickly change into a actuality! I imply, these are AWESOME information! I’m so able to journey, and in reality, I’m born to journey!

Though I’m hopeful, I additionally wish to be real looking! The covid-situation is so fluid that it may be difficult to make plans. In spite of everything, these are past my management, so I additionally must handle my expectation. Thus, I shall not make plans to journey till issues are extra concrete. 

That mentioned, I’ll proceed to discover completely different components of Singapore, respect what we have now, and continue learning and rising my wealth of data.

Let’s see what 2021 will carry. I’m embracing the 12 months, and for any journey (if it occurs), it will likely be a bonus.
