How would you like to improve yourself and your life next year? Is there a piece of advice or counsel you received in the past year that could guide you?

Pay attention to health, excercise and diet. Take up yoga and meditation. Start the day early, become more focused and self-motivated.

Focus? Or perhaps, more self awareness: of my energy and how to harness and manage it, of my emotions, of my values.

Every year, well, every day I tell myself to grow and improve myself in some little way- any way at all- so that I can look back and see how much I've grown or changed as a person. Little changes add up to big ones, and adopting this mentality has only proved that. I am growing and improving myself in little ways every day and seeing those add up to dreams coming to fruition is so rewarding for me.

I would like to have greater patience with everything, and to be less fearful of doing new things or in living my faith.

I just want to go back to being a sympathetic person. And a good listener, with a good memory. Over the past 2 years I got too self involved.
