Happy New Year!
Last night was a balance of celebrating with friends over dinner and then heading home to watch the ball drop in New York. Somewhere between coming home and climbing in to bed I made the decision that all leftover chocolate must go….into my mouth. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Waking up this morning, I was thinking about the concept of resolutions. It doesn’t seem like the popular thing to do any more but of everything I’ve read, I think my favourite is from Wikipedia’s page where there is mention of Knights taking a ‘peacock vow’ to reaffirm a commitment to chivalry. Call me old fashioned but I’m OK with that.
Setting resolutions isn’t something I feel I need to do but a new year does make me think about all the things I want to try or do or be- at some point. For me, there is no need to panic and put all these things on the table RIGHT NOW. Heck, I don’t even know what ‘all these things’ are!
Having said this, here are a few things I would like to remember along the way:
- Be patient with yourself
- Routine things in life are actually pretty amazing;
- Start small, water, grow;
- Pay attention; and
- Be brave!
Do you make resolutions?
