Is to not make any New Years Resolutions.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to take a little break from blogging, but now I feel like I'm ready to jump right back into it, and while this feels like a bit of a new start, I thought I'd jump ahead a few weeks to the new start that's heading all of our ways come January 1st.
Last year, I remember reading so so many New Years Resolutions posts, and I even did one myself. But this year, I'm taking a bit of a different steer on things. If there's one thing that I've learned this year, it's to expect the unexpected. Life has it's own little way of throwing things at us, some are totally pleasant surprises, while others, seemingly, are out to test us. Which, is actually totally fine, because life would be a little boring otherwise, wouldn't it?
We always start the year with all these great plans, and then January 2nd arrives and they're generally already out the window, and then you basically sit there and think, 'oh, well, that's failed so I might as well just wait till next January 1st, and start again then. That's totally fair. Right?'
Like eating healthy.
And going to the gym regularly.
And being super dead cultural.
And basically not failing at life which is how I feel right now.
So, the only thing I'll be promising myself this year, is to just take each day as it comes.
Nothing that we do right now is going to change what's to come. Promising ourselves that we're gonna ditch all the chocolate, dig our gym kit out from the depths of our wardrobe, meditate every morning, or read all those books that are gathering dust on our bookshelf, is going to help us when life shakes us all up and sends us in a direction that we didn't even know existed.
Like when someone in your life suddenly leaves with no explanation, when you decide that what you're doing with your life isn't what you want at all but you can see no way out, or when you have to restrict yourself to eating lettuce for lunch for a few days 'cause you didn't ditch the chocolate and you can no longer fit in your fave pair of jeans.
LIFE. I'm not planning you anymore. But I'm still gonna try and not fail as badly next year. Promise. ;)
