I am looking forward to seeing the back end of 2011. Yep, once the countdown begins I will eagerly be waving goodbye to the year that was.
2011 has been one crazy year! I’ve probably experienced more emotions during 2011 than I possibly will for the rest of my life. I have been excited, stressed, distraught, elated, happy, sad, crazy, angry, mellow…and sometimes all in one day. But with a new year, comes a new leaf…and if the ups and downs of 2011 have taught me anything, it’s that I need to start seeing the glass half-full.
So I’m starting from now…cos let’s face it…no one likes a Grinch on Christmas Day.
And once the countdown to 2012 begins, hand on my heart I promise to hopefully keep the following New Year resolutions:
1. Positivity me – yep, that is my new phrase. Goodbye pessimism, hello optimistic. I am going to start making people sick with my “turn the other cheek”, “isn’t life grand” outlook on the world. Besides, life is too short to worry about the small things, so I’m saying goodbye to my fickle self!
2. Motivate me – There is no more room for excuses. In 2012 I will be hitting the gym, loosing weight, making a start on my dream of writing a novel, blogging more, volunteering more, creating more (mostly cos I promised my man that the £95 spent on sewing classes will not go to waste) and doing more. Because I want more out of life, I’m going to get motivated to get more out of life.
3. Loving me – if anyone has suffered this past year from our up’s and down’s, it has been my man. I love him, more than he possibly knows, and adore him for not walking out the door when I’m sure many times he has wanted to. So here is to more love, more time to ripping my clothes off, more time to passion, and laughing and us! After all, it is also the year of our wedding, and I’ll be damned if we aren’t making people vomit on the day with our cheesy love!
4. Making a stand – if 2011 has proven anything, it is the power of people. Never before have we seen more people rise up for what they believe in. And they are right, whether their cause is worthwhile or not, they are doing what all of us should do publically and personally…stand up for ourselves. My cause may not be as great as some, but I plan to spend 2012 standing up for my beliefs and supporting causes that help with these issues. I am blessed to have a good life, and feel that I should give more to help others…and in 2012, that is what I shall do!
So there is my top four things I plan to achieve in 2012. Only four, but four grand ideals to make life better and help me achieve my goals before turning 30. My list could possibly go on for much longer, but hey, I highly doubt 2012 will be the year of miracles!
So goodbye 2011…you will not be missed.
2012 already promises to beat your skinny white arse.
