The 'New Years Resolution', actually dates back to the late 1800BC - I bet they didn't stick to their 1st of the month self improvement promises either.
However, the Babylonians actually vowed to pay debts and return borrowed possessions, to their God rather than loose the extra winter belly rolls.
The Romans also made promises to their God, Janus, at the start of each year and to confirm their commitment, Medieval knights took a vow at the end of each Christmas period.
Now after reading that doesn't that make your resolutions a little inadequate? Yeah, mine too! haha
So to make myself feel a little more up to par with Knights and Romans I am going to answer the following points that I've thought up with utmost integrity.
Although our jobs are not 100% safe with being in a 'temporary'/waiting to be made permanent store and only working part time, it is of course way better than being jobless.
We had both worked from the age of 15 and through no fault of our own fell victim to the career crisis facing the country (or world really) in recent years.
A Time When I Disappointed Myself in 2013.
I'm the type of person who can't say no very well and will do anything to help and support someone should they need me. I am disappointed in myself for having not trusted my initial judgement and stayed a social hermit, although I don't regret it as we have ended up better off in the long run.
General Happy Highlights from 2013.
Other happy things were moving house (both times initially even if the first one didn't work out), completing the Race for Life again with my Mam and Baker this time and having a lush hot summer spent in a paddling pool!
What I Am Most Thankful for Last Year.
Oh talking of Jake I am thankful to have such a good friendship and relationship with the poo head too.
Looking forward to this year.
Going back to Disneyland with my Mam! Mam and I have never had a break just the two of us and I haven't been on a family holiday since 2009 so it'll be good to spend quality time with my Mam away from stress and daily life. Not to mention I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND! It's been 4 years you know :(.
Am going to do differently.
Strive to achieve.
This year I want to do all of that plus more. I am already looking into organizing a sponsored dog walk to raise money for the Guide Dogs association and welcome any invites you may have to events - especially those involving animals. Oh, my Mam and I are going to do this too!
- Reduce my salt intake for my health's sake. It is the only bad thing I do but it's still bad enough.
- Start exercising more after my new asthma treatment starts taking effect and that is under control.
- Continue to spread positivity and inspiration though this here blog!
- Spend as much fun play time, if not more, with my two B-Boys.
- Keep my 'finances' (lol, money and bills) organized and under control.
- Perhaps be back into a position where I can have a car again.
Okay, I think that's enough! I'm fo' sho' going to do an update of my popular Bucket List shortly but until then this is what I'll be working on. I hope you enjoyed reading. If you indeed managed to read it all and I'd love to know your goals too so comment below!
