New Year Goals

It's that time of year when you think about setting a new years resolution. I for one have never really made one and if I have it has never been meaningful enough to stick too. This year I've decided to reflect on the past few years and have come up with a list of changes that I plan to make this year

Number One

'Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life' 

My work life balance is something that I've never really got right and the quote above sums up life perfectly. I've always worked all the hours I can and for 5 years I worked 6 days a week. I am now lucky to have two days off a week but still working the same hours just crammed into 5 meaning longer days and no social life in the evenings. I know Leanne is the same and has always had several jobs on the go. This is something that will take some time to sort out but I will get there in the end.

Number Two

"It's only by saying 'No' that you can concentrate on the things that are really important"

I am definitely a people pleaser and hate saying no to anyone. I have now realised that by always saying yes I am actually the one being affect and sometimes left feeling used. Whilst I'm not about to start upsetting people I am going to start to think about what I want first.

Number Three

"Take risks: If you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise"

I've never really been a risk taker as I worry to much about everything...literally everything. As a result I've never really taken risks as I'll worry that it's the wrong thing to do or I'll get it wrong. This means I can often miss out on things because I've been too busy over thinking what to do. I love the quote above, if it doesn't work out there is always a lesson to learn. I will take a risk this year...even if it's a very tiny one.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new"

Here's to 2017!!
