New Year Ramblings

Is the coast clear? Has the slew of New Year's resolutions and #goals blogposts come to an end yet? I've been hiding under a fluffy blanket trying to ignore the fact that everyone seems to be more focused than I am this year.
It's the first new year in a long time that I don't have a long list of things I want to change about myself or to change about my life. The first year I haven't been compelled to cast a critical eye over everything and vow that THIS WILL BE THE YEAR I lose the weight/eat better/write a novel/run a 10k/blog everyday/discover the cure for cancer/etc, etc...

While there are certainly things I'd like to achieve in 2017, I haven't had the urge to write them down and turn them into a promise to keep. It helps that some of the things I want to achieve are already underway - like my book!! And other things are ticking over from last year - like the show I'm working on. But, in general, I kind of feel like flying by the seat of my pants for a while - enjoying the things I'm doing at the moment and trusting that I will know what to do or change when the time comes.

I'm not the sort of person that is ever short of plans or ideas or ideas for plans, so I imagine I'll survive without a list of resolutions I'll potentially beat myself over the head with come February.

And if things start getting a bit unraveled, as they likely will at some stage, I'll reassess my need for that list of promises and do it then.

By then I won't have to call them resolutions either - so maybe that will make them easier to keep!

How are your New Year's plans looking?
