Another Christmas break is slowly coming to an end…
Every year when these glorious two weeks come around I feel so free, almost as though it’s summer. My brain starts making crazy plans about how much I will do, and how well I will use my time and how much I’ll exercise and eat carefully and read books, and do all the things that I never have time for. And every year, without exception, the end of the holidays arrive when I’m still mid-daydream thinking about the great ways in which I could spend my time. January, why do you always come around so quick?
As cosy and perfect as winters are, time spent at home during the vacation always goes by far too quickly, and suddenly we’re all back to waking up at 7am to a cold, miserable and dark winter morning. I think that’s what’s most unbearable – waking up in the dark. You try to motivate yourself, setting upbeat songs as your alarm, imagining how you will bounce out of bed in the morning feeling fresh – but everything is so gloomy when the sun isn’t around. On the bright side, I’m looking forward to February.
All in all, I have hope in February, so please come around soon and pace yourself because I want it to last.
I know it’s already the 2nd of January – but it’s never too late.
Last year I made a list of things I wanted for 2013. This year I’m going to keep it short and simple – KISS. I’m going to do what I want and I’m going to be who I want to be. I’m going to be better. As selfish as that may sound, I don’t think I prioritize myself enough and 2014 is going to be a year about me. A year of breaking past silly boundaries, broadening my horizon and gaining confidence. I hope. Well at least I’m going to try.
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope 2014 brings you all the best.
