Last year on New Years I was in London with one of my closest friends Chandni. We planned to go and see the fireworks, but were so tired after our day out, we almost ended up staying in. I’m all about being comfy as soon as you are home but the effort to get up again and go out! Especially if you give me tea. Anyway, I was determined this evening. Who was to say if we would ever be in the same city for new years and get this opportunity. We rushed to get ready and ran across the city in the freezing cold just in time to see the fireworks and count down the new year with everyone else.
Then just as soon as we had left, we were back home in the heat and hungry. We stayed up for hours and dissected the year over veggie burgers and talked about 2015 and what we wanted. Forget resolutions. We had plans. Ridiculous plans. But still. We put it out there. We were brave enough to say what we actually wanted.
We still talk about that night (just yesterday actually). We started something and from now on I will never make a resolution, I will start from “what do I want”.
You don’t need to wait until the 31st December to do that or to give yourself a fresh start. I always give myself a fresh start. I always try my best but my god do I mess up. But it’s never the end of the world.
If I had one wish for you reading this, it’s that you are brave this new years and say what you want and then go for it. You don’t need to share it with the world, but tell yourself at least. It changed my life for the better and I would only want the same for you too.
Have a brilliant new year whatever you are doing and thanks for reading this post and the blog.
If I have it my way I will be at home, comfy drinking tea but I have been told this is unacceptable and I may be dragged out. Pray for me.
My ideal new years party for one. Bliss.
See you in the new year xxx
