Celebrities’ New Year resolutionsBy Dolly Anne Carvajal
Philippine Daily Inquirer
The start of a brand new year gives us a chance to get things right this time around. We may have lost many things in 2012, except our hope that 2013 will be a better year.
Even celebrities still have unfulfilled promises and dreams that they hope to realize this year.
I intend to be less emotional and live healthier this year. I believe that if we want something badly enough, it will happen.
Bring it on, 2013! Here’s to triumphs of “King Cobra” proportions this Year of the Snake! Just as a snake sheds its skin for continued growth, may we all uncover a new “us” and grow in ways we never thought was possible.
MARVIN AGUSTIN: “I’m allotting more time for education this year. I’ll take up marketing, finance and scriptwriting classes. But more importantly, I will spend more time with my family. I hope to travel more and explore restaurants owned by my idol chefs abroad. 2013 will be a year to enjoy life more!
BARON GEISLER: “My promise to myself this 2013 is to engage in a therapy program that involves spiritual nurturing and medical assistance as an outpatient of a facility. It is my desire to accept my condition (bipolar disorder) and work to overcome it with maturity. I promise myself to achieve financial stability and grow into a better person.”
WENCY CORNEJO: “Career-wise, I want to record a new album. I’m three years overdue for new
material. I’m itching to get into the studio again. I also need to expand my biz, Galletas de Davao (pastry products), and start a new product for distribution. Professionalizing the business is very high on my priority list. As for my personal life, finding someone to hold dear would be nice but not a necessity. Taking out unnecessary physical and emotional baggage seems more important. Figuratively, traveling light on a road less traveled is something I want to achieve in 2013.
KIM ATIENZA: “My promise is to be more balanced, physically and spiritually, by joining triathlons. I’ve never been this fit in my life. But my spiritual life is in atrophy and has to catch up. This has nothing to do with religion. I shall get back to meditation and inner communion with my Creator. I have a tendency to talk to God too much. This year, I’ll listen more. Meditation is the way.”
GRACE LEE: “I promise to exercise more regularly this 2013. And hopefully, through the grace of God, improve in prayer. I have always been quite envious of people who can pray so fluidly.”
