“My sons will grow up each year, much faster than the previous year, no matter how much I pray to keep them as my babies forever,” she said.

“Yes quality time is important, but I will now aim for QUANTITY of time, for activities together, for everyday memories, for more travel, and for meaningful conversations where I’ll do most of the listening,” she added.

Kris also noted the importance of spending more time with her siblings President Benigno Aquino III, Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Pinky Aquino-Abellada, and Viel Aquino-Dee.

“My siblings deserve more of my company, whether they want it or not,” she stated. “At the end of the day, we can cry together, wipe our tears away, laugh at life’s surprises, and appreciate just how blessed we are to get along, to be supportive yet honest, and to just know there’s always someone who will just be ready to love, comfort, and forgive, come what may.”

As for relationships, Kris said she wants to “focus on just a really small circle of friends, friends who are inspiring and positive, real, and compassionate. I shall reciprocate their kindness and generosity enthusiastically!”

The Queen of All Media also promised to “let go of the one who didn’t have the ability to hold on. And just maybe someone new will now have the space in my life I kept locked up, because now that space is free.”

Through these resolutions in her relationships, Kris aims to be “less self absorbed, more introspective and involved in my life, making careful decisions, and being more present in the lives of the people I care about, and the people who care about me. I shall develop true personal, life long connections.”

Aside from strengthening her personal relationships, Kris would also like to take care of her health more, due to the health problems she had encountered in 2015.

Last year, she was hospitalized due to over fatigue. She also recently lost her voice, which forced not to speak for five days.

“Health is wealth. I’m eating better, taking my maintenance religiously, but realizing that 14-16 hour work days are just so unrealistic to expect from my 44 year old physical body, and in the long run- mauubos ang naiupundar ko for the kids kung walang tigil ang pagpapa ospital ko,” she said.

In line with this, she plans to “lessening my load, will make time for physical activities I enjoy (elliptical and yoga), and I will sleep before midnight, CONSISTENTLY.”

She also added that she “shall learn when and how to say no. But I shall maintain my passion for the work I really love, it’s just a matter of PRIORITIES.”

Her other resolutions include de-cluttering their home, taking an intensive cooking course, and writing regularly in her journal and blog.

Kris is part of the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015 entry "All You Need is Pag-ibig." In a recent episode of her morning show "Kris TV," the actress hinted that she is open to the possibility of "All You Need is Pag-ibig" being her last movie.
