So, it's 2012. That's different. The main topic of conversation this week is "New Year's Resolutions". I don't have any. Everyone is tweeting and blogging about how they plan to change their life for the better; not me. I just don't feel the urge to this year for some reason. 2011 wasn't a great year for me really. There were many losses of friends and people my own age within the last 4-5 months of the year which hugely shocked everyone and often had me reflecting on my own life. I was out for New Years Even this year and when the clock struck 12 I was overwhelmed with emotion and burst into tears while James gave me the midnight kiss. Instead of the future I was a bit stuck thinking about the past. I've explained before that I am a thinker and this will never change. That's what spurred me to write this slightly angered post entitled "Is your life THAT bad?"
Instead of making a "resolution" I'm just going to take life day by day. Perhaps make do-able daily resolutions; like today I want to smile more, today I want to clear out my room, today I'm going to organise my diary; rather that making one huge, often generic "plan". I figure it will be much more possible to do more things day by day, plus I've less of a chance of "failing" (lots of inverted commas in this post eh!!?). I suppose I'm contradicting myself by saying I don't have a New Years Resolution because basically I do and it's to not have one/take life day by day!
I hope you all had a peaceful enjoyable Christmas and New Years and are looking forward to a fresh start for this year :)
