|Emerging from the excesses of Christmas...|
At the end of it all, is that shining example of a better 'you'. It is actually quite heartening that so many of us remain motivated by the idea of improving ourselves, even if it does require some mental self-flagellation along the way (spin classes, no sweet treats, a 'dry' January). At the heart of every New Year's resolution is a yearning to grow and improve. Part of the human condition is never to stand still, to resist the limitations of the present.
I can't remember the resolutions I set myself at the beginning of last year, or even if I achieved them, and yet I still find myself gripped by January's mood of purposefulness. This year will be better than the last, I tell myself. Evidently, I still haven't lost my ability to dream...
My New Year's resolutions are:
- Think positive
- Be less stressed, see the bigger picture
- Manage my time better
- Write 500 words a day on my new novel (Monday to Friday)
What are yours?
