Happy New Year everyone!! Hope you guys have a wonderful and fulfilling year ahead. Keep shining, you people! Contrary to what these pictures might suggest, New Year’s at my household this year is going to be a quiet affair, thanks to a last minute throat infection. So, instead of wine I’ll be chugging huge amounts of tea and warm water in the hopes that that clears it up and instead of dressing up in my finest and going to a club to ring in the New Year, I’ll be in my jammies, surrounded with tissues, watching some random documentary on Netflix but hey who’s complaining. There’s something to be said about that kind of a relatively calm affair, amirite? I mean does it really matter what you are doing on New Year’s eve? As long as you are with your loved ones, that’s all that really matters, right? I remember when we were kids, every year at New Year’s we would all bundle up together in a blanket and watch whatever New Year’s show happened to be on T.V at the time. After leaving home, I’ve spent the New Year’s doing all sorts of things be it partying or traveling but nothing beats the New Years’ I spent with my family, huddled together in a blanket, eating peanuts and watching Award shows.
I am also continuing my last year’s resolution to not make any resolutions (read it here). I really think that resolutions are meant to set us up for failure from the get go. Part of what makes us give up on our resolutions one week into January, I think is the unrealistic expectations we set on ourselves. In my opinion we should rather focus on the small term goals and start by making small changes which are bound to stick in the long run. I will say this though: If I really have to make a resolution this year, it would definitely be becoming more and more environmentally conscious (which is something we as a society should collectively make). I mean we have all read the UN report on climate change, right? If that’s not enough to make us take notice and take some concrete steps, I don’t know what will. Again, start with small changes which will result in bigger changes in the long run. It could be as simple as not using single-use straws whenever you get a drink, you know. Or taking a bag with you whenever you go grocery shopping. Okay then. I don’t want to sound like a bore, especially today.
Wishing you all a very happy new year, again! Be happy, be healthy, be unapologetically you!
Until next time
