Happy New Year!

Well that’s it! It’s all over and back to normality (and work!). I had a nice and chilled out new year with my family watching the new Mickey Flanagan DVD and playing the Beer Pong game my brother got for Christmas! Now every year you hear talk of resolutions be it getting fit or being more social but I have never been one to really set any kind of resolution but I’ve been thinking that may change this year. I’m going to bypass the cliche resolutions of getting fit (although perhaps I should do this too!) and focus on time. I spend a lot of time thinking about how long I have to do things or how long I have left until I have to go somewhere and it can be quite stressful in that I spend so much time thinking about it that I don’t enjoy the free time that I have because I’m counting down until the next thing I have to do. So I have decided that I’m going to try and enjoy my free time more and live in the moment rather than keeping tabs on how long I have to enjoy it!

I am lucky to live in an area than is quite literally a 3 minute walk to the forest and I really should spend more time there. I always enjoy it but unfortunately I also enjoy lying in bed on a YouTube marathon so you can see my problem! But I really do vow to try and enjoy my free time and even get out of the house more often!

So whatever you have chosen to do or even if you have decided to bypass any kind of resolution this year I hope you all have a wonderful year. There are bound to be hurdles along the way but hopefully it’s a happy year for us all!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  1. Well, I think there is great wisdom in what you say, don’t waste a single moment of your precious time in negativity or worry… my mama always says there is plenty of trouble to go around, no need to borrow more! I also really respect the whole concept of planning your free time so that it maxes out on being well spent. Its like when I keep looking at the alarm clock all night worrying that I am going to have to get up soon. That time would be better spent in restful sleep. Nice post… I love the name of your blog, too!

  2. Happy New Year! 🙂 I love your simple resolutions of living in the moment and enjoying your free time! 🙂 I hope you have a chance to visit the forest close to your home more often this year. (You might want to chose days that are warmer for that activity. :))
    I wish you health, happiness, and enjoyable free time where you can live in the moment!
