Well here we are 2013 is upon us… heavens, how fast did the last year go…? Answer, at the same speed as every other year, we just need to know how to make each year count and every month matter.
My first and only resolution this year is not to waste time, wish my life away or be able to say this time next year, well goodness me where did that year go? I want to do something that will make 2013 a year I remember fondly, a year where I feel I have made a difference to my life and, if I am lucky, to someone else’s life too.
Daydreams are just that, happy thoughts that while away precious time, how often do we follow through and really do all (or even some) of the things we dream about? I have a list of places I would dearly like to visit and trips I want to take before age gets the better of me and I find that I either haven’t got the strength to make the trip or the oomph to make me go out of my comfort zone. So far I have ticked Alaska off my ‘to do’ list but I still have Egypt (I’d love to see the pyramids) and the Northern Lights waiting for the budget and the time! I also daydream too much about getting a novel published and this is the year I want to see something happening… so watch this space!
So I am pushing to one side all my normal resolutions like, dieting, being more organised, making the garden look prettier, making a patchwork quilt, doing more scrapbooking and a dozen more that fail every year and just focusing on that one concept… make 2013 matter!
So, come on, tell us what resolutions you’ll be making…!
A happy and peaceful New Year to you all!
