Happy New Year! I wish you good health and much happiness for 2020.
Yes, I know it’s more than half way through January, but it’s never too late to wish anyone good wishes, in my humble opinion. I hope you had a reasonable festive break and have started 2020 fit and well.
I’m purposely avoiding a blog post on New Year Resolutions. I’m at the stage where if I want to make resolutions and do new things, I just do it! There are twelve months in the year and if my changes are required in the months of May or September, then that’s okay. New Year Resolutions are not just for January.
Often, I’m full of good intentions to try new and different pursuits but I find that I sometimes lack energy and focus, so for me, it’s important to be in the right frame of mind before I commit. It’s fair to say that I like engaging in new interests and being challenged with something that’s outside my comfort zone. This week provided one such opportunity and despite the need to sharpen the pencil and do lots of thinking for ‘said project’, dare I say … I enjoyed the challenge!
I’m a great believer in the old adage, ‘There is no failure, only feedback and learning’. It’s been very reassuring particularly when things didn’t turn out as I planned . My lovely Dad used to remind me, ‘Nothing is ever wasted, learn from the experience and take away the learning’. I’ve received lots of feedback and learning over the years! No doubt 2020 will provide even more.
Happy New Year!
