Happy New Year! So the year 2017 is now in full swing across the entire world with so many people making ambitious new years resolutions and plans to make the year ahead that little bit better, that little bit productive and that little bit more worth while.
So what are my plans? Well, I can not say that I have made any such resolutions but more of a real effort to focus on what is important to me. The last few years of my life have been what I call a train wreak and I have just been dragging through it without much thought for the consequences for myself let alone other people. It was strange because every year New Years Day is just another day for me and I pretty much feel indifferent about it. Yet this year, I felt a deeper, more required need for a change, concentration on myself and focus. The change is more required towards a better beginning, rather than a new beginning as such. The past year does not just disappear for people, no matter how much they would wish it to. I wish to concentrate on my goals and dreams which I feel have taken a back bench for a long while and have been severely neglected. I feel a sense of anxiety and excitement all at once and almost an urgency to get going and make my life better for myself first before thinking about making the lives of others better.
So here is my small cloud of ideas to make my year a better more productive one:
- Regular meals which are healthy and balanced
- Regular meditation for relaxation and clarity of thoughts
- Regular exercise for the preservation of health and dexterity
- Regular writing; online and journal
- Personal and professional development in career and self reflection
I am thankful for what I have been give over the last few years, both the good and bad. The good and maintained my faith in humanity and the bad has been a rude awakening that standing up for myself and thinking about myself is just as important, if not more important.
What does the new year mean for you?
I wish you all the very best. Remember to never give up, there is always a new chance to try again.
With all my love and best wishes to all,
