Happy New Year guys,
I hope you have all had a chilled out and loving festive period. Maybe you’ve danced your butt off until the early hours, ate until you were sick, stayed home by the fire or hitting those sales, whatever you have been up too, I hope it’s been perfect.
With the New Year, I always like to have a little time to reflect and work on self improvement. I’ve made a quick couple of resolutions that I think will better myself and help with self love, personal growth and those all over fuzzy, happy feelings. I thought I’d just pop on to get those fresh resolutions written down and posted before I forget as let’s face it, I’m not very good at keeping my blog on track.. (there’s a resolution for that).
I’ll begin, first up – READ MORE BOOKS.
I make this resolution every year but last year my reading trailed off track, with a toddler, working life and all the in between there is little time to wind down for an hour here or there and find opportunity to enjoy a book. This year, I wish to make the effort. Half an hour before bed each evening to send me off to zzz. There are SO many books I want to sink my teeth into and what better than the beginning of a new decade to get stuck in?
Secondly – BE MORE GENEROUS, BE MORE KIND.
I have been thinking a lot lately about ways to help inner happiness, to bring smiles to others and show I care for my loved ones. I’ve decided to dedicate more time for friends and family and to be more generous. Wether it’s bringing Mum flowers weekly, treating my Husband to a meal out or even just putting in time for those we don’t see enough of. I’m working to be a better me and to try and being the best out of those around me too.
Last but not least – SAVE, SAVE, SAVE.
Yep, we all want to save more, myself included. Currently we are hoping to move to a family home to expand our family and have a little more living space, ideally one with a bath so I can buy a bath bomb for every day of the week (I love a bath).
Saving is tough, especially when you aren’t left with much other than bills, childcare and childerns activities but I always like to check our savings and watch as they grow, it brings me happiness and a sense of achievement. Here’s to another year of saving, one step closer, one hundred to go, to the dream of a family home.
Have you made any resolutions for the beginning of the next decade? Let me know, I always love to hear from you all. Happy New Year.
