I know it’s a little bit late in the year to be talking resolutions, but at the same time: any day is a good day to change your life. So that’s why I wanted to talk a little bit about the concept of resolutions and how I’ve decided to approach them. Over the past few years I’ve been the master of overstretching myself in terms of resolutions. I think last year I had about twelve of them! While I got some done, and I wasn’t too strict on myself, in general it’s better to keep a narrow focus and just focus on one thing. That’s why I only have one New Year’s resolution for 2018. One focus word.
Although they’re over by now, I absolutely love those days in between Christmas and New Years. It’s cold outside and I’m sitting on the couch with never ending amounts of French cheeses, wine and hot chocolate (not at the same time, obviously). Without having to do anything! I always try to work as little as possible on those days, and I managed pretty well this time. Instead, I used those days to make some plans for the new year. I wrote down my New Years resolutions and I even accidentally started a bullet journal.
I know not everyone believes in New Years resolutions, but I kind of like the idea of a new year and a clean slate. I know that realistically speaking it doesn’t matter one bit if it’s 1 January or 18 January, but that doesn’t take away the fact that it’s a good thing to pause for a moment and evaluate your last year, yourself, and see if you’re happy with your life and your personality. That’s why I made a nice list of New Years resolutions, and I’m sharing it with you! Grab a cup of tea, because this is going to be a nice and long personal blog post :).
