The first post of the new year and how apt for it to be a part of my very own link up party with Pooja and Upasna, the monthly #BlogAlong.. Hoot hoot.
The year has started off crazily hectic indeed;
The first weekend of the new year was spent diving in the Great Barrier, the next 2 weekends thereafter went in house hunting (sob sob story of being unexpectedly asked to vacate currently rented apartment), and then this last weekend went by in a mad rush of packing, cleaning, moving and unpacking into the new place (it’s just gorgeous and my head is exploding with the number of decor and DIY ideas I want to implement!)
Time does fly!
The theme this month was to plan the year ahead, as is the theme for every January, year on year, for each and every one of us. We plan, pursue, persevere, procrastinate, and then politely (or maybe sheepishly) forget it all!
What is it with resolutions eh… Brings out the utmost dedication in us and then also brings about our inevitable descent back into our set ways..
My resolution this year, like every year was to send greeting cards to all near and dear ones for birthdays, anniversaries, and what nots. Have I sent a single one yet? Nope. Heyyy, scroll back up to know why. But then again excuses excuses excuses.
I think I should just resolve to let this year be and bring what it may for me. Life has pretty much been kind to me, year after year (with a few glaring exceptions) but resolutions or no resolutions, every year turns out great indeed. And I end up being a whole new and sometimes improved version of myself.
So there you go, my resolution for 2016, I officially declare that I am going to let the winds of change or the tides of tomorrow take me wherever I am meant to be. And smile more. And worry less.
PS: 2016 is also the year I turn 30. Any other day I would be panicking and making my things before I turn 30 list. But today is the first day of the chill-pill me. So not yet.
Tomorrow? Who knows!
