I am a bit like this about lots of things in my life. To be honest I have a mixed relationship with resolutions. Some years I make none, refusing to set myself up to fail. Other years I make several full of hope and determination. I then generally fail. I did this last year. Great resolutions, honestly made and mostly ignored. But, and this is where I have grown this year, I refuse to feel guilty about this. What are resolutions for? In my mind it is the process of reflection that matters. In this quiet time between Christmas and new year I have taken time to think and look at life. Generally it was a happy process, I am a blessed person surrounded by a lot of love and friendship. We are comfortable, live in a lovely home and I have a great husband and amazing children who make me proud every day. There is always room for improvement though!
Pip at Meet Me At Mikes has posted about resolving to be interesting and to hang, like a bunch of grapes, with interesting people. Interesting is good. To be interested is perhaps the mark of someone who is young at heart, to never give up and to never, well you know, splodge. So this is my resolution for this year. I am going to be interested in what is around me, to embrace change and to seek out the interesting. We'll see if I get beyond the first page. I have high hopes as I think that in this bloggy world I have already found so much that is interesting and so many interesting people. That gives me hope for a very happy new year x
