Happy new year! I hope you all had a restful and fun filled time over the holidays. I certainly did and despite doing nothing overly extravagant for New Year’s Eve I feel like I’ve got this year off on the right foot.
As one year ends and a new one starts it seems that everyone becomes a little reflective on the things that have happened over the last 12 months. To be honest, I don’t think I can help it, it’s nice to think over all the changes that have happened in your life, both good and bad. That’s the only way we learn from these things, right?
Anyway, reflection and a new year pretty much always result in one thing – resolutions!
Year in, year out, my resolutions usually look something like this list above, only to be broken and tossed to the side after 2 weeks – if I’ve been strict! This year I changed my mind though. I mean, who am I kidding? If I know in my heart of hearts I’m not going to stick to that expensive new gym membership, why start it in the first place? So this year I have decided to write myself some realistic resolutions that I believe I can stick to and, most importantly, that I actually want to.
They may not be resolutions in the strictest sense but more goals I want to achieve this year. Are they the same thing? I’m not entirely sure.
Anyway, here goes…
So there we have it. Seven things I aim to do this year. Things that will make me enjoy my year more and give me more to look back on next year. Here’s hoping I stick to them!
