Last year, during our Christmas lunch, the boss suggested that we make 2 new year resolution. One related to work and the other related to personal life. While it seems like my work resolution (keeping my table tidy) is headed for failure, I think I am quite ready to fulfil my personal resolution (:
I’ve had the notion for a while now. But I never told anyone for fear that people will think that I am silly. Silly because
- My family definitely can use with the extra cash.
- I can do with the extra cash. My progress of building my emergency fund has stagnated.
- Loads of people need help in Singapore.
- It’s at the other end of the world, it’s not your problem.
- What for?
So when I did voice it out last year, I felt relieved. I think the colleagues didn’t quite know what to say. There were laughters and teasing when all of them made their resolution but when it came to my turn, there was silence.
ANYWAYS! Now that half of 2012 has passed, I think I am ready to kick my plans into action. I have been doing some financial planning for the past month or two. Making sure that I don’t overuse my credit cards and overspend. I think by end August or early September, I’ll be ready (:
Recently, I realised that sampat king (aka Wei Jian) is sponsoring a child in Myanmar via World Vision! So I am even more encouraged to start my plans.
Gonna start googling about the cause that I want to sponsor soon! So excuse me if I start posting about this topic over and over again in the next few weeks/months (:
