What is your resolution for this year? I am not in the habit of setting resolutions, instead I used to set myself 'goals' as a teenager, things to achieve. Unfortunately I often set these in a dreamy state of mind and without much practical idea of how to achieve these goals. It became quite depressing at the end of every December to realise I had yet to achieve many of these. This year I am going back to that old habit, but I am going to set goals that I can achieve if I apply myself and work hard. Here they go:
- Finish the London Marathon on the 17th of April 2011
- Defeat ill health and lead an energetic and normal life - eat well and get fit
- Get my work/life balance sorted by not working over and above
- Actually go on holiday
- Find time to enjoy the things in life that make life worth living: read more books, go to the theatre, spend more time with my often neglected boyfriend, visit my friends.
I don't want to go into all the miseries, but I am very glad to see the back of 2010 and am full of hope for 2011. Onwards and upwards!
