… and just like that 2015 is done and dusted.
There were so many things I had expected would happen in 2015, but like most years more things were left undone than were acually done. It is a good thing, I guess. It keeps you looking towards the future with hope, and hope, they tell me, is the most powerful thing of them all.
For the last few years, I have been making a series of resolutions and consistently failing at them. So, this year I am doing away with resolutions altogether. This year I think it would be a better idea to take each day as it comes without having targets set in stone, because as soon as you realise you are not going to achieve them, you give up.
Targets are good, but some of us have this habit of setting unrealistic targets, and when we realise that we are not going to get anywhere near them, we simply give up. And that should never be an option.
I don’t about you, but this has happened to me more than once now. So, this year I have no resolutions. I have an idea of the direction I want to be heading in, and that is going to be my guiding light.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
2016, therefore, is going to be about moving. The only caveat is that the movement should be in the right direction. You have to know which direction you want to be headed in. If you don’t know that yet, then it is better to pause and reflect on that before you start moving. You don’t want to reach somehwere and realise that this was never a place you wanted to be at
But I digress. This is the first post of 2016, so it is only apt that I keep it short, and wish all the readers a very Happy New Year, 2016!
