Lovely Late Resolutions


Did anyone make any New Year's resolutions on Monday? How are they going?  I bet a few have been broken already.   The man on the till at Asda yesterday told me that his attempt at an alcohol free January had lasted a day!    My lovely boss said that she'd given up making resolutions based around denial in an attempt to lose weight, be healthier or become more organised.  Instead she's committed to giving herself  treats.  Having a regular manicure was one of them.   And maybe she's on the right track.  For if we take action to feel good about ourselves perhaps things like reducing our chocolate and prosecco intake and doing more exercise, will become easier to achieve. 

I didn't actively make any resolutions but perhaps  deciding to give myself a Sabbath each week  fits the bill.   I start tomorrow.   A walk and some crafting is planned.  I've also had an idea for a rolling ongoing resolution to be renewed in years to come.  Each year while I'm still able I'd like to visit a country that I haven't been to before.  Portugal and Ireland are on the list for this year.

So if your resolve has been pants have a rethink and come up with something lovely that you can do for yourself in 2018.

    2. I have only one resolution, which is to focus on NOW. It is working so far.

  2. This is a good idea, a bit like the reverse Advent many people did in November/December.

  4. Resolutions are usually in the negative which I dislike, so I will concentrate on the positive in all things. Easier that way! xx
