‘Have you made your New Years Resolutions yet?’ is increasingly being asked in the run up to 2016. For once I’m actually making some. The reason I never make them is just because if I want to do something then I’ll do it, regardless of whether the next year is looming. This is personally why I don’t have fitness/health goals for the New Year – These are a lot more to do with working on my head.
My goals for becoming a better person mentally, not physically.
Honest to god, I have no idea most of the time what this phrase means. Post-university life got me like: [insert gif] I’m going to have to join some sort of group or club… I’ve been planning on it for a while and I’m really trying to find an orchestra/ensemble to join with my violin in Manchester. This is proving harder than I originally thought.
I used to make videos years ago, but I really want to get back into it. Only problem being is that at the moment it’s dark as soon as I leave for work and as soon as I get back. Not ideal and I am not investing in studio lighting. As soon as the lighting gets better, vlogs are happening.
Firstly, I’ll just clarify what I mean with this. I am very open. But the problem is that I’m open to all the wrong people. I will tell you my life story – the ups and downs and everything in-between to anyone. Then I’ll regret it later on. You have no idea what people do with the information you give them. People are judgemental and it can have repercussions…
I’m telling you this first, I’m not having the year that I’ve had for the past 3 years. 2016 is going to be awesome. I’m getting my life back.
I can get a little hot-headed when it comes to things… I let myself burst all at once with anger and don’t confront people when I’m annoyed. In some ways, I don’t really understand what the word ‘assertive’ really means. It’s naturally getting a bit better the more I’ve been in the workplace and the more conversations I have with important people – But it still needs work.
I want 2016 to be a fantastic year in which I’ll make new friends, ditch old ones and just generally have a fab time.
