Hello 2018, I have been waiting for you!!
2017, what a year it was, and I know I’m not alone in saying that it was a whirlwind. Personal issues aside, we had Brexit and Trump to get our heads around in what was possibly the most dramatic political year we have had in a very long time. But I’m definitely not here for politics.
It’s all about “New year, new me” and quite frankly I am not on board. Ok, so I’ve been partial to a resolution in the past, to kick off the year with good intentions. But the number of times they have “failed” has made me re-evaluate this year. On the point, I just want to apologise to all of my friends who have put up with my unachievable resolutions, and the whinging that came with them. For what it’s worth, that is officially over. Why do I have to wait until New Year arrives before resolving to better myself? So, it’s time to ditch the cliché and focus on some alternative “New Year’s” this year.
Not convinced? Here are my top 3 New-Year’s…
New Year Positivity, I mean, without sounding too Miss World here, why not start the year by celebrating all the positivity in our lives? This would be much more joyous than trying to resolve the negatives.
New Year, New Word, How about you chose one word dedicated to how you want to live the year? Just like the Chinese years have different themes, why not have a theme for your year? I quite fancy 2018 to be my “Wild” year. Wild ways, wild swimming, wild adventures, wild relationships…?
New Year’s Highlights, By this, I mean kick off the year looking forward to what is coming up in 2018. For starters, Stranger Things have said they are releasing series 3, we have the eagerly awaited Royal Wedding (not to mention Kate & Wills baby No3!), your friend’s big party, that ski holiday… whatever it is, there is so much to get excited about!
It is just my opinion, but, how much more fun are these New Year’s?! Your turn… #HanxNewYear
