New Years Resolutions

It’s that time of year again…when we all make resolutions that we probably won’t keep. Mine seem to remain the same every year. Lose weight is always on there but instead I usually end the year with more flab on me than I started with. This year is no exception! However, I know I need to lose weight s

o as usual it will remain on the list.

I’ve made 12 resolutions this year. One for each month of the year:


I’ll try to keep them. I think a few are realistic. I can definitely start running again, in fact I have already made plans to start. I just need to keep it up. I am sitting my geography GCSE in the summer through work. I work in a grammar school so failure is not an option. It will be a bit embarrassing otherwise, especially when the students I work with will probably be in the top 10% nationally. I will not be!

I can probably read 52 books next year. I managed it this year, although a few of them were read for work so I am not sure if I should count them. I can manage a random act of kindness every week as well. I probably do this instinctively without thinking about it. The difference is that next year I will go out of my way to do extra things. I’ve got about 30 different ideas so I am optimistic that it can be done, and done well!

In fact the only one’s that I am doubting are the weight loss and the new car. I can do the rest! The £1000 saved will be difficult but I think I can manage it. And as I will probably be unemployed from August I have the definite focus I need to get myself into gear and get the self employed thing going. I’m not quite sure what format that will be in but I will be working from home, and earning at least equal to what I earn now by September! That is a promise!

So for now adios!

Happy New Year. I hope 2018 is everything you want it to be!
