Lucy Torres’ new year’s resolution: Be more spontaneous

0 76

This 2018, she is going to accept that some things are to be left that way.

Ormoc Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez has decided to be more carefree this new year, if only to help relieve the stress and guilt she carries all the time.

The politiko ended 2017 by tidying up their home and catching up with old friends, which made her realize several detoxifying routines.

“My goal is to make every space beautiful. And to be more detached, by not hanging on to things I know I may have already too much of and/or that can be put to better use by others,” the model turned politiko said.

Torres also learned to be more accepting, and chose to cut herself some slack.

“Perhaps a personal underlying theme for 2018 would be that of mindfulness, to consent to what is (instead of resisting it and wanting to immediately change parts of it —- there will be another time for that anyway), and to not feel guilty about the pauses I must make and take if only to make more meaningful connections,” she added.

Through all this, she chose a beautiful rose as her year’s icon.

And so it has been a gentle and very lovely few days into the New Year. I’ve spent nice hours writing Christmas cards, wrapping and dispatching gift deliveries, cleaning out closets, organizing. My goal is to make every space beautiful. And to be more detached, by not hanging on to things I know I may have already too much of and/or that can be put to better use by others. It has also made for some quiet joy reconnecting with people, meeting and making new friends, being spontaneous. Perhaps a personal underlying theme for 2018 would be that of mindfulness, to consent to what is (instead of resisting it and wanting to immediately change parts of it —- there will be another time for that anyway), and to not feel guilty about the pauses I must make and take if only to make more meaningful connections. So here’s to being grateful for the sunshine (and surprises!) of each new day, breathing into every moment (yes, even with all its imperfections!), and making each one count.♥️
