Happy New Year

What are your resolutions for the new year? Tell us how you picked them.


Shelley BeachI start a new year with a sunrise, here’s one I prepared earlier!

Seriously though I do not really set New Year Resolutions, I know I’ll probably break them in a week. I honestly doubt to see many sunrises either, I am NOT a morning person. My Husband………for ever to be known as MOTH (Man of the House), is a morning person and quite frankly it drives me to distraction when he is home when I get up. Sometimes he is wonderful and makes me coffee in bed, that helps. New Years Day will be no different, at least I am still on holidays.

Perhaps I should think back on the last 12 months, and look forward to 2015. Perhaps if I were to pick a few resolutions it would be the norm…….eat better, exercise more, be more active, write more, spend more time with family and friends etc etc etc. 12 months ago I would have added quit smoking to the list………..but hey! I kicked that one this year, but that was not a New years Resolution, oh no.

I think we get sentimental around midnight for another year gone, and think of all the things we wanted to achieve and so many of us have not, while others have. In some ways I did not achieve everything I had planned on doing; but by anyone’s reckoning I had an enormous year; good and bad. So when I think back on 2014 now………I don’t have any regrets. Maybe that can be my new year’s resolution and my motto for 2015 – No Regrets!

So I look forward to a year filled with promise, with all the wonders it has in store for me, the first 3-4 months are already jammed full of goodies, I cannot wait to get started. So Have a Happy New year Everyone and remember; No Regrets
