Another year has passed, another 365 days of memories that we will all look back on remembering all the laughs and mistakes we made. But every year if it’s not me, I always hear someone say –
“This year was rubbish.”
There is always one person, if not more who are disappointed with how their year turned out. Perhaps they didn’t achieve the goals that they set for the year such as finding new love, a new job or making a change to their everyday lives.
Now I know that’s not a great feeling but to say the entire 365 days was rubbish is a little dramatic.
2014 may have been tough for some, it certainly was for me.
I had the daunting task of completing my A – Levels and going to University, like thousands of others. Through this change I experienced losing friends that I thought I would never have thought of losing, no matter how many times we said, “Don’t forget me and promise to stay in touch!” – It just happened.
But that’s not to say that there weren’t any good things, I made a huge change by moving away from home and living with complete strangers who I now call very good friends. It’s amazing just how much can happen in one year – who knows what the New Year will bring?
One thing is for sure, we will all make some ludicrous News Year’s resolutions on New Year’s Eve that some of us will never intend on keeping.
Your friends, your family, everyone will enquire about them as if you are actually intending to make a monumental change to your life. But who is to say that you need a New Year’s resolution to make a change?
Mine as always is “This year I will get fit and healthy and go to the gym”, the change that I have wanted to make for the past five years.
New Year’s resolutions are pointless, how many of us have actually kept one?
Of course that’s not to say that I won’t at least try going to the gym which is what I think it’s all about. It doesn’t matter if we don’t make a change; the important thing is that we at least tried.
Here’s a list of New Year’s resolution and I guarantee that you have at least broken one:
- Lose weight and go to the gym.
- Stop smoking.
- Stop drinking.
- Save money.
- Travel to places around the world.
- Don’t stress.
- Be kinder.
- Stop swearing.
