This is my first post of the New Year and like everyone else I am sat here with a slightly enlarged waistline due to the copious amounts of mince pies I have consumed over the holiday period.
After much thought I have decided that this year is going to be different. Don’t worry I havent turned into a tree hugger or had an epiphany, but I thought I would try something a little different this coming year.
What I have decided is that I need to plan ahead what I want to achieve rather that looking back at what I have achieved. Its strange when we look back at what we have achieved we can list our successes but seldom do we remember the things we didn’t achieve.
I suppose that we have been programmed to forget stuff that isn’t seen as ‘taking you forward” and we forget very quickly the things that we felt passionately about when we were young. I know from experience that when you get older and the more responsibilities you have the more you have to compromise and that colours your decision making.
I could be like me you feel its physically unrealistic to follow your dreams and you soon you start saying no to all sorts of stuff that if you put your mind to it you could still do in some form or another.
So here is my plan for this coming year. I am going to say yes to doing stuff that takes me out of my comfort zone and laugh a lot more, after all you are a long time dead.
Now some people who know me well will be aware that I am a little cautious when it comes to parting with my hard earned cash so I will be looking at stuff that doesn’t cost a fortune. How much can it cost to be a little happier and a little more adventurous without the use of illegal substances and ladies of the night.
So once a month this year I will make a point of trying out something that will make my heart race a little faster or make me smile a lot. So this years blog should be a little more interesting than the last years offerings. All that remains for me to say is I hope you and yours have a happy and healthy 2015 and you follow my newly hatched plan over the next twelve months.
