Happy New Year to my lovely friends and followers, I hope you had a nice evening whatever you decided to do. New Years Eve is traditionally a night where we have my parents over, and I make a curry banquet for us all, and then we play games or watch a comedy DVD. Unfortunately my Mother was ill this year and so it was just my little family of six. We had our curry (see previous post!) and then we played on Beatles Rock Band until about 11.45pm, where we turned over to BBC2 to watch Jools Holland ring in the New Year, and watch the spectacular fireworks in London. It was a lovely display, highlighting the things that had happened this year in Britain, the Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics, and it brought it all back as to what a wonderful year this has been - not just in terms of the patriotism and unity our country seemed to be in for once - but what a good year it has been for my family. I don't think I can remember a better year. And you know what, I'm determined 2013 is going to be even better for us. I have a really good feeling about this year. (This is where by tomorrow, my rabbit is dead, my washing machine breaks down and my husband leaves me...!)
Resolutions - no. Goals - yes. I'm going to be working on my Vision Board later, I'm definitely a convert and an advocate of Vision Boarding. If this is something you think you might be interested in, my friend Carmen has some wonderful stuff up on her website TheNewHappyMe, and you can find useful information about Vision Boards here. To have been a witness to her own personal journey this last year has been a breathtaking privilege, she's a true inspiration to men and women alike - showing how you can follow your dreams and change your life. If she told me that dipping myself in honey and rolling around in feathers would make me fly, this clever lady would probably be right. Do check her website out.
So what goals do I have this year? I don't have anything concrete as yet, I'm going to sit down and have a think about them, but - I want to lose some more weight. I want to walk more. I want to cook more. I want to read more. I want to create more. I want to spend more time on the things that make me happy and less on the insignificant. The keyword here seems to be more. I want more of the good stuff, I want more out of life.
What are your resolutions or goals this year? Do you think resolutions are a waste of time, and do you think goal setting is much more realistic?
