Like 99.9% of the world over I make New Years resolutions. The ONLY difference between me and the rest of the world is that I do not break them. At all. Ever.
Last year I gave up smoking, and I can proudly say that today I am 366 days nicotine free. I gave up smoking 2 years ago but a drinking/smoking lapse in judgement in 2013 lead to me smoking again for the last 4 months of the year.
This year I am going to stop shopping at garage shops. We are all guilty of the “Oh, I am just going to pop into this Engen One Stop quickly and buy gum/coke/chips” – I must spend about R600 a month JUST on stopping at garage shops. Don’t even get me started on the coffee shops IN Garage shops – Mugg and Bean on-the-go in Illovo probably stays in business because of my coffee habits.
So in an attempt to save some money so that I can do some travelling this year, as well as to just stop wasting money in general I will NOT be shopping at garage shops anymore.
I am also going to try to stop swearing, run at least 5 times a week, invest more time in my social life, try new things, be more out going, work on how much I suck at making small talk, and invest time in people who make me a priority.
I still haven’t managed to meet my goal weight, so for the nest 3-5 months I am going to be on a hectic eating plan, with lots of sport and activity thrown in.
I am excited for 2015. It has not started off very well, in fact it has been shit so far but I am hoping that after 2 days in, it will only get better.
I am going to be better, I am going to do better that is what I want to achieve in 2015.
Being good at anything is like figure skating—the definition of being good at it is being able
to make it look easy. But it never is easy. Ever. Thatʼs what the stupidly wrong people conveniently
I love that quote from How to be creative
I did a lot in 2014, I made some big changes but 2014 is done now and I plan to make 2015 super duper FUN!
