New Year, New resolutions?

There is something quite inspiring when you start a new year.

It’s full of possibility, hope and good intentions.

The gyms have never been so full, the queue to the microwave at work is snaking around full of people resolved to save money on lunch, the healthy aisle at the supermarket is empty…

We all do it and it’s ok, as long as we don’t put to much pressure on ourselves and can accept that for most of us, it’s just a phase and it will die a quick death by the end of the month.

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am a fickle person. I find new things to get excited about all the time, whether it’s #DIY, #artsandcraft, #jewellerymaking, or #creativewriting…I get all excited, get new gear, do a couple projects, get bored and move on to the next one…Sadly, I have the attention span of a 2 year old.

Saying that, I circle around back regularly so I start the cycle using the same activities.

The one thing I don’t do though, is new year resolutions, mostly because I know it’s a lost cause for my flitting brain. I don’t go on a diet, I don’t do #dryathlete (better to be moderate than to go cold turkey) and I go to the gym the same as before…

I do have the very good intention of completing at least one story though as I used to be prolific in my younger years but I haven’t seem to be able to complete one single story since I caught the writing bug again…I think it’s all down to fear of failure and by that I don’t mean failure to complete but failure to write something good. We are always our worst critic.

So here is to a new, bright and full of hope year 2016 and whatever you do, #keepwriting!
