Hi there everyone, and if it’s the first time you’ve read the blog this year, Happy New Year! It’s my first official day back at work, and my mind is turning to resolutions – so I thought I’d see what yours were. Have you planned any life-changing strategies for 2013 yet? Will you be?
When I make new year’s resolutions I tend to go with the normal things: eat healthily, do more exercise, be organised. The first two of those I already have covered (she said, smugly! I lost a bit of weight in 2012) and the third is frankly a lost cause! It’s all happy chaos here and you know what: it works for me.
My new year’s resolutions for 2013 then are:
- to have adventures
- to climb some mountains
- to be happy
I started a new life in 2012, and took control of my own happiness. I love where I live, I feel as though I’m thriving here by the beach and the mountains. Happiness seems to have found me, and I’m determined to make the most of every moment of the coming year. Life’s too short to live half-heartedly: as Frank Turner says, I plan to “grab life by the throat and then live it to pieces”!
I saw the New Year in at an intimate gig in Manchester, with my boyfriend. 2013 began with a kiss from my man, and with a huge grin, dancing, singing and smiling! So I’m carrying on the same way – and I want to spend time with my guy and with family and with friends, both old and new. I want to work and play hard, to enjoy life, to do new things and say yes as often as I can!
It’s possible I might also lose some weight, if the fierce marketing of yoghurts gets to me again this year. (Can’t wait for that to start again! 😉 I will exercise more – because when the sun shines on my beach I can’t resist being there! And I’ll work my little head off to bring you all the best real weddings from around the UK on English Wedding Blog of course!
So tell me – what are your new year’s resolutions? What will you do in 2013? Is anyone else keeping a diary (I am!) or doing a photo a day, maybe?
Whatever your resolutions, good luck. Have an amazing 2013! Claire xxx
