Resolutions for the ‘New Year’… I’ve been thinking about this a lot today…
With The Husband ill in bed and the dark grey clouds and rain outside, it’s been one of those days: I’ve literally felt like a tiger locked in a cage and, although I don’t usually make New Years resolutions, today it felt right to make some.
What I regret most about 2013 is the amount of time and energy I’ve dedicated to the wrong people. In doing so, I’ve neglected people that were far more deserving of my time and received nothing (except headaches) in return. No more. And hence, my unofficial New Years resolution is to surround myself with positive people.
An article I found particularly interesting in this regard is:
And so I say “Enough with toxic friendships!”
My other unofficial New Years resolutions are:
i) to look for the good in others;
ii) imagine positive outcomes;
iii) pour my heart out for those I love.
I may well have more by the time Tuesday arrives, but for now it’s just those Fabulous Four.
And my ‘Official’ New Years resolution is: to get fit. I used to be a marathon running, Thai boxing champ.
Now I’m delighted if I run 10km in an hour and if i can defend myself from one of Thing 2’s roundhouse kicks. “What the helmet!” as Thing 2 would say. Readers! it is definitely time to get fit and healthy. This girl’s fed up of feeling old and haggard. She’s definitely got a few marathons left in her and maybe even some sparring sessions with those tattooed Italian kick boxers at the gym.
2014 – I’m going to kick my ass!
