Helloooooo! Happy New Year everyone! I hope it’s off to a good start for you, as much as it can be on the second day of the year.
I know I’ve said I don’t believe in NY resolutions and I still don’t – I think that if you want to make a change, you can do it at any time – however, there’s something so compelling about having that specific day/time of year that acts like a reset button. So I’m not making any resolutions, but I’m going to casually ponder about what big plans I’ve got for 2018.
Have a massive clear-out. It’s something that I actually started last year when I went through my clothes and got rid of about 3/4 of what I owned as I hadn’t worn most of them in a very long time. I want to take it a step further this year. I want to take a few days – a long weekend or so – and go through EVERYTHING. Donate what I can and recycle the rest. Clear space – clear mind. I think that works.
Read 40 books. Last year my goal was to read 30 books but I actually managed to get through 45! I’m guessing you’re going to be asking why I’m not setting my goal this year higher then? Well, because last year I was working through some things that gave me a lot of time to just get lost in books and read away. This year is going to be a bit different so I’m happy if I’ll manage 40.
Become a yoga pro. Alright, that’s not actually my goal but I do want to get back to doing regular yoga practices. I really love it and it’s just so good for me. So why the heck am I not already on it? Slacker…
I reckon that’s a good enough start. A few clear goals to aim for. I’ll keep you posted on how I get on with it all.
I’d love to know what you’ve got planned for 2018 (yes, I’m that nosy), so let me know in the comments 😉
Also, yes, the featured picture is me watching Titanic on New Year’s Eve, just before and after midnight, whilst Mischief was peacefully snoring away.
