Not just a new chapter, I’m rewriting the book

I’ve always loved new year and the feeling that comes with it.

It’s like creasing down the first page of a new notebook, with pages and pages of opportunity left to be written, a year to be shaped and created right at your finger tips.

I normally make way too many resolutions, that are overly ambitious and downright impractical. The buzz in the air as the calendar and clocks tick over to mark a new chapter leaves me feeling alive with possibilities for what a new year can hold.

This year however, my approach to new year is a different one.

It’s in my nature to be a planner, from how I spend the weekends, where I want to go on holiday for the next two years, what’s the next step in my career?... I can’t help it, I’m always working out my next step.

If there is one thing 2016 has taught me, it’s that life doesn’t care about your plan. You can have big dreams and big goals, but things don’t always work out the way you’d like them to.

I am usually at a frantic speed, plotting my next strategic move like life is a high tactical board game, while failing to realise that like playing a game, we can’t always win.

This year I’m stepping back from all that planning and overthinking, and I’m embracing the crazy journey life may take me on. So let’s have a delayed toast to just working it out as we go along, making the best of what we have right now, and appreciating the simple joys the year may bring.

Happy New Year!
