It’s been 6 months since my last post. Well done, Lizzi. Good work, fantastic regular blogging, round of applause!
Somehow, we sailed through 2015 and seem to have landed at the end of January 2016. I’ve had 6 months of ideas float into my head…and then vanish again before I have a chance to put pen to paper (well, fingers to keyboard…), and my intention was to kickstart the year with the old cliché New Years resolution post, but as ever I’m slightly late to the party!
Right, that’s my excuses over. On with the rest of it!
Last year I wrote a post called “Never Mind The Resolutions” which started much the same as this (spotted a pattern?!). Looking back, I completely forgot about my one resolution for that year: to keep a note of one good thing for each month to post at the end of 2015. And whilst I’m not too impressed with myself for that, I’m still going to try and pull something together, because for the most part I enjoyed my 2015.
But onto this year! I decided on four fairly simple resolutions for this year: read more, write more, socialise more and worry less. All too often, we put too much pressure on ourselves on the new year to lose a stone, read 100 books, travel to five new places or whatever else it may be – but I just wanted to focus on the things I enjoy.
So far I haven’t done a whole lot of reading, but I have been doing a fair bit of writing over on TenEighty Magazine (if you like YouTubers, that’s well worth a read!). I’ve definitely upped my socialising – and I’m trying to set up some regular social things that I can rely on, because I know I’m not great with the spontaneous things! As for worrying less…I’m trying. But that one’s a long process!
I’d love to know what other people’s new years resolutions are, and how you’re getting on with them at the end of January. Let me know!
Until next time,
