Today everywhere you look, it is going to be something on the lines of ‘New year, new you’, ‘its a brand new beginning’! Every year I also fall into the trap and start making resolutions, promising myself things that I know I would not keep. You can go into my blog archives and see for yourself!
This year I did no such thing! For heaven’s sake, I am the same person that slept on 31st December and woke up on 1st January all the same!
This year I treated January 1st as just another date on the calendar. It did not hold a special meaning whatsoever. Only effect that I let it have on me was that I allowed myself to feel a kind of renewed energy, if you know what I mean. I gave myself permission to do what I have been always doing, in a more grand way, if that’s possible.
This past year, I have been ‘trying’ very very hard to let things go on their own pace sometimes. Not to fight over gaining control. It is time I do just that, try a bit harder even!
This past year, I have let the ‘idea of perfectionism’ hold me back from doing a lot of things that I wanted to do. It’s time I let that go. I am going to make mistakes. I am going to make bigger mistakes. That only means I am moving forward and not freezing in time.
This past year, I have tried to come out of my ‘shell’ and make some new adult friendships, which are hard to come by as it is. It is time I put more of myself into maintaining those and hopefully make them into lasting relationships.
It is time to be more of ME this year!
P.S This watch was a gift from husband on my last birthday. It’s the only gift in all these years that I have worn every single day!
