I’ve never really been one for new year’s resolutions. But this year, I feel the need to set some. I think that maybe it’s because some of the months of 2014 have been lost in a sleep deprived haze. I had a new baby, so that’s ok. But I feel the urge to be more organised in 2015, so here goes.
- Lose weight. (I know how terribly cliché of me), not only lose weight but get fitter too. Not run a marathon fit, but overall healhtier.
- Start up my own business. I qualified as a Cambridge Consultant last summer, so intend to start taking clients this year and I’m very excited about it.
- De-clutter. Ok, not so easy with a house overrun by primary coloured plastic, but clutter is taking over my house and I want to streamline a little – as much as the toys will let me!
- Go back to my singing lessons. I really miss them and gave them up when I was about 8 months pregnant with Aria because I just found it too tricky. As Aria has been (understandably) very fussy, I haven’t been able to return yet. I hope I can manage it in the next couple of months.
- Get more organised. I used to be so organised, I used to manage big budgets and multiple client accounts, then I had children and gave up work. I just need to start writing to-do lists again and planning my time more effectively and less hap-hazard. I have even dug my filofax out again ;-).
- Blog more. I really wanted to get this blog properly going again last year and I did ok for a while then the third timester of my pregnancy hit and of course Aria arrived and I didn’t do so well. Ideally I would like to post something at least once a week, or even more, that would make me happy.
- Read more. Last year I read 31 books. To some people I know this probably sounds a lot. But compared to the previous year’s 67, it was very low for me. For 2015 I have set myself the goal of reading 50 books.
- Hug my babies lots. I read somewhere that you should aim to hug your children 12 times a day (apologies I can’t remember where to share). I tried to count the other day and gave up, but I do find when my toddler is having a bad day, sometimes the best thing I can do is sit down with him for a while and hug him. So this strikes me as a lovely and rewarding resolution to have :-).
Maybe I should view this more as a to-do list?
Wish me luck!
What are your resolutions?
