Woah woah woah! Hold up! It’s the 31st December!

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!

When I think back to the past year there are so many big events and milestones for 2018. I still cannot believe that so much happened this year and all seemingly in the blink of an eye. To round off 2018 I am sat in my parents’ living room on the floor typing out this blog post. My brothers have returned to Scotland for the new year countdown and my parents have gone to bed. I am calm, collected and pensive. It’s been a while since I spent new years at home ‘doing nothing’ so this restful time period is welcomed.

However you are spending ringing in the new year, I hope you have fun with friends and family, and stay safe! Wishing everyone a blessed 2019!

A brand new year has begun! Happy (belated) new year!

Now that a new year is upon us it is often the time where people make resolutions and changes in their life. I am not one of those people. While a new year is frequently considered as the perfect time to adopt a new lifestyle, I have never sought after change in this time period.

Change is not limited to time constraints. Embracing a new diet or work out is not restricted to the beginning of the year. Adopting a new way of life does not have to come about just because the previous year is over. Change can come about at any time of the year. You can wake up one day and want to be a whole different person. You can change yourself in an innumerable amount of ways at any given time. A resolution can arise from a change in thought, and it can be kept for weeks, months, years or not at all.

Change is what you make of it.
