Christmas is gone, the tree is down and there is a whole new year ahead of us. January is full of hope, opportunity and excitement. 2017 has been kind to me in so many ways but equally it has been a very testing year physically and emotionally. I will say goodbye and breathe a sigh of relief that the year is finished. What will 2018 bring? I have absolutely no idea!
Every year since I can remember I have set myself goals on New Year’s Eve, and this year is no different. So here they are, I’ve tried to be realistic and not set the bar too high!
No Spend January
This is something I’ve done for the last few years. I don’t buy anything in January unless it is absolutely necessary – that includes going into the sales!!
Writing in a Journal
I’d had my eye of Fearne Cotton’s Happy Journal for a while and I was lucky enough to get it for Christmas. I’m so excited to get started on it, I’ve even bought a new pen (stationery Nerd!) A chance to write joy into everyday and let go of perfect.
Although we had a massive clear out when we moved house 10 months ago the house needs a blinking good sort out. Each room feels muddled and there are piles of ‘things’ everywhere!
Look After Myself
You cannot pour from an empty kettle. Enough said!
Be more conscious of what I and we are eating as a family. I don’t like to say the word diet, but……..
To Wear Everything In My Wardrobe Atleast Once
I have a ridiculous amount of clothes yet always manage to wear the same few outfits. Wear it or lose it!
To Wear Lipstick
I don’t mean a bright red one! My Nanny always said you can change your mood by putting on a lipstick, so this one’s for her.
A mushy one – Be grateful for everything I have, everyday even when life is difficult.
Happy 2018 to you all and a massive thank you for following me and my ramblings x
