Goals Achieved by 25!

Hye there! Just the other day on the 6th of July, I turned 25! That is me hitting the quarter life marker!  I had the simplest yet the most meaningful birthday celebration, since it also fell on the same day as Raya. I got to celebrate it with close friends and my family.

Sorry the family portrait that I took was blurry. So I patched in the 2nd day of Raya's selfie with my sister here instead!

Friends turned into family!

You know throughout the years, I have always been looking through other people's achievements and envied them for it. But this year was a little bit different, my mindset has been somewhat altered. Instead of envying other's bigger achievements, I started to realize my smaller achievements and embraced them. I didn't belittle them, which I know, you are probably doing the same.

Honestly, this is what kills the motivation to do better, because you are lowering yourself, when you have already achieved so much more. This is the case for me though, that's why I have decided to put an end to it and cherish all of what made me the way I am today!

I am a dancer!


Since at a very young age, I have been dancing, may it be traditional dances (even performed at state level!) or even modern dances. Though honestly, I just prefer dancing to Kpop nowadays. I only have the recent videos to prove it, well it's something rather than nothing, right?


This is only one of the covers that I did. You can watch the rest of them on my Youtube channel. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE while you are at it ok??!!


I was even given the honors to join 10 minute crew for a few contests, you can check those out too from their channel and I also performed with Soulerz.

I am a basketball player!

Ever since primary school right up to secondary school, I have been playing basketball. Even competed up to state level with my fellow secondary team mates. Being the only odd ball of the group, I still was very much welcomed into the team, and I have even learnt to love falling down and scraping my knee once or twice. Ah~~~ the memories. 


I am a Model?

I started off as a freelance promoter in 2013, and by pure luck during an event, where initially I was supposed to hand out flyers when suddenly it turn into a modelling contest as one of the contestant didn't show up. And that was my very first crowning. I told you before, I am just purely blessed or just damn lucky!


After this event, I was blessed with the opportunities to appear on magazines and even work with famous motorsport-related brands like Maxxis, Cycling Malaysia, Hypertune, Tom Stickers, Harley Davidsons, Motobatt and many others.







Nowadays, I rarely do events or photoshoot, but once in a blue moon I do have it. So am I retired from this line or not, well it's hard to say. But if you are keen to look up more of me modelling you can check it out here : https://www.facebook.com/YanaOfficialPage/

I am a Designer!

Though not famously recognized as one, I did graduate in the designing line, and along the way I have done a few design jobs. 




I am a Hiker!

Well, some will say that I am just a person strolling up the hills as I haven't hike those major ones, but still hiking is a very new thing for me and in all seriousness I do plan to hike up Mount Kinabalu in the near future. So far, I have only been up Bukit Gasing, Bukit Puchong (not sure of its name), and Bukit Broga.

I am a Marathon Runner!

Actually since last year I have been in an active lifestyle. I guess this was my way of getting out of depression from the previous relationship. Not regretting my decision one bit! Who knew I could ever finish a 10km run for the first time in my life, without training (not advised to do so) and just finished the race with pure determination to prove to myself that I am way better off this way.


I have 3 more marathons to cover by end of this year - 21km Standard Chartered KL Run, 12km AXA Hearts Action Run and the 42km Penang Bridge Marathon. I really wish to finish all these marathon goals within this year to move on to other life goals by next year.

I am a Blogger!

Duh! Just because being a blogger ain't easy! Contrary to what people think of bloggers, it does actually take up a lot of time, money and passion as any other professions. It's really like a one stop production centre. You are your own photographer, videographer, event manager, writer, pr, interior designer, creative director and the list of roles just goes on and on!

I want to take this moment to thank you for always dropping by my blog, reading and engaging with me through my posts. From the bottom of my heart I truly appreciate it! Without you, this blogging dream of mine would have never come true. Because of you, I was able to be recognized as a blogger!

I am a Youtuber!

Even though earlier in the days, I have been using my youtube account as a platform to show off my dancing skills, now I have turned into an all-rounder account with my ever so often postings of hair and make up tutorials and product reviews. Hopefully, sooner rather than later I will be officially recognized as an official Youtuber (somewhat like Bubz or Michelle Phan - don't mind me setting my goals high)

You can check out my official channel at : 

or if you are lucky enough to find the older videos through "liyana6791"


These are probably just small achievements compared to yours, but in all honesty these are the key changing points of my life. Some of these goals were unexpectedly achieved when I was at my worst points in life, therefore I have been able to stand up stronger and a little more wiser. I do have a bubbly personality, that is only because I know what it's like to feel at the lowest times of my life with the hardships that I have been through.

Never let anyone belittle your achievements! You, yourself have to acknowledge them! If you don't, no one else would!

I guess that's it for now, do share with me what have you achieved so far, would love to read them!
Bye bye! Take care and be strong!

Sincerely,
Absolute Yana

      Delete
    4. The first jump is the worst. Everything is telling you to not do it so that is the hardest part to overcome. But determination can push you past it and once done the adrenaline rush is awesome!

      Delete
    5. is it easier for someone to push me over? or its still the best to make myself to do it..?

    6. Just do it yourself! It's scary but very rewarding since YOU accomplished it!!👍
