I’ve always liked the idea of New Years resolutions, even though I’m not usually one to actually stick to them! I think it’s the thought of a New Year being such a good time to make some changes (even though really these changes can be made anywhen). As 2017 comes to its close I find myself inadvertently thinking of what I want for next year, however I also realise that I never thought I’d be where I am now at the end of last year.
I have some goals in mind for next year, some the same as last year, some new ideas. I thought maybe writing them here would help me actually stick to them this year, knowing this is on the internet for people to see!
So, in no particular order:
- SPANISH. Keep learning, no excuses. Be at a comfortable conversational level.
- Continue along my vegan journey.
- Notice and be grateful for the small things.
- Keep photographing what I love.
- Keep positive, don’t sweat the small stuff, and KYCU*
However, I also think it’s important to keep in mind that life does sometimes get in the way and as much as I didn’t expect to be where I am now last year, this time next year I’m likely to be thinking the same thing. It’s good to have an idea of where we want to be in a years time, but we musn’t let it drag us down when things don’t go to plan. Everything in life adds to the journey, and as long as we continue to learn, we continue to grow. We’re all only stardust anyway!
