HAPPY NEW YEAR! One and all. 2017 is officially over, we are now in the grand old age of 2018!
I am back, (hopefully better than ever) ready to kick 2018 off with a bang. A lot has changed over the year, mostly for the better and I am better for it.
Luckily, I get to spend it with my partner, who is my favourite human. We will be seeing the new year with an alcoholic beverage in hand, as will many others.
First of all, I would like to wish all of my friends and family, who are all over the world right now. Some in the town I came from, some in London, some in Swindon, Some in Swansea and some in Aberystwyth.
All around the word people will be celebrating with their loved ones, drinking champagne and making up numerous amounts of resolutions, most of them will be broken in a few weeks time, but we always try nonetheless.
I always try to make up a few resolutions for myself, most of the time I do break them. If you are having trouble trying to make some up, here are a few of the ones I will do my best to keep this year:
- Cut Down on Alcohol – We all like a cheeky night out every now and then, you know, the ones where you get so drunk that you can’t think straight or you are left with a monstrous hangover for the next couple of days. Well, I have learnt that I don’t need alcohol to have a good time (one sign that I am indeed getting older) sure there will be reunions and the odd night out that I will indulge in, to keep the memory of being young alive.
TIP: Try not to make you resolutions an unreachable goal, look at it from a different angle so that you can feel accomplished.
- Continue writing – I love writing, I love to come up with ideas and mold them into something that could possibly change the way someone thinks of something. In a world where we have limited control, it is nice to know that I can create a place where I can control everything inside.
- Make more time for others – We all know that feeling when we feel distanced from friends or family, and there are times where you or they will need someone to talk to. It only takes a phone call, text or an email. Just a hi, hey or even hello, it could make the world of difference, could even brighten somebody’s day. We should all make time for someone else at some point in our lives.
Remember not to make your resolutions too difficult, we can all make differences if we just change a small thing in our day to day.
I would like to sign off with a little quote:
‘Life is like a snowglobe, it may get turned upside down, left and right, but after all of that you can always look forward to the shower of glitter’
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Make this year the best it can be.
