At the start of a new year, many of us consider a fresh start. I have never understood this. Not the part about reviewing and reflecting on the status quo as this I believe allows you to move on in life, to grow and to learn. No, the thing that I don’t understand is the why now. The whole new year new start idea feels like preparing to fail. Its so much pressure, a whole year doing a new thing. So, resolutions are not for me. I did think that goal setting sounded good though. Less pressure and no failure, just working towards achievement. I take no credit for this however as the idea was totally sparked by my cousins Facebook post so cheers Dave!!!!!
Anyhoo, the goals…..
To hand write a personal letter every month. (already done one so far!!)
To finish one item per month from the UFO pile (I will share the progress for this one)
To eat more meat free meals.
Behold last nights tea. I did plop some beef suet dumplings in with it. Note I said meat free not vegetarian.
My last goal is simply ‘to look up’. Its amazing how much is missed by not doing so. The stargazing live programme inspired this goal and I have seen meteors,lunar and solar eclipses because of it.
I will be reviewing my success and setting new goals regularly through the year.
Have you set any goals? I’d love to know.
By the way putting the TV on and crocheting a few squares for SIBOL is a totally achievable goal for a ccccold Friday.
