Happy New Year!
Now about those New Year Resolutions. Are you a ‘big bodacious hairy goal’ setter? A crafter of sweet personal commitment lists? Or do you sit in the camp of ‘I always break ’em by February so why bother’? Judging from the volume of motivational New Year quotes shared by friends and family on Facebook January 1st, seems a lot of us have intention. I searched for mine:
‘Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book, write a good one’
‘365 new days, 365 new chances’
Right, so the new year has the same amount of days as last year. Good to know; and clearly the world will end on December 31st, better get cracking, pop the book publisher on speed dial and to hell with the editing.
‘New year, new feels, new chances, same dreams, fresh starts’
‘What if you simply devoted this year to loving yourself more?’
Valid point, why not? Could do with a regular massage, pedicure, retail therapy, oh yes, a lot of retail therapy.
‘This is your year to sparkle’
Excuse me? I already sparkle darling.
‘This year I just wanna go on more adventures. Be around good energy. Connect with people. Learn new things. Grow’
Already in action but a nice little reminder.
Dear self. This is going to be your year. So dust off your sh.tkickers and let’s get started. All my love. Me’
Well ok, if you insist. And while we’re on the subject, let’s not forget Harold. Harold kicked ass with his goal. One big bodacious goal that one.
Quotes aside, I personally get a buzz from spending January 1st lazing by the pool treating NYE celebratory champers fuzzy head with hair of dog while reflecting on how well I progressed the goals of the previous year, and jotting down those I’d like to achieve in the new. The following little gem, plus recent milestone birthday seriously upping the ante!
‘Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life’
Better believe it baby, I’m planning on continuing to squeeze every last drop out every day, and not just the next 365 of ’em. Have locked in another ‘Harold’ (fluid conversational French), plus a whole raft of baby self-loving promises, based on the Wheel of Life* and designed to nurture the soul, feed the spirit, energise the body, stimulate the mind feed the energy and more. May just struggle a tad with that ‘five alcohol free days a week’ promise; possibly a bit iffy on the ‘one new short story a quarter’ but hey I’m game aren’t you?
