No, there won’t be a new Curly Mum, but perhaps by the end of the year a much improved one, and a happier one. Since tomorrow is the start of the new year, I think it’s time to make some resolutions. I already have some targets for Kate’s Grooving Mums (which I have forgotten all about over the busy Christmas period but will get back to when I can), but I’d like to make some for the new year. I like the idea of a ‘fresh start’, I suppose. It shows, because I’m always in desperate need of a brand new notebook, and I am always starting a new neighbourhood in The Sims 3 or a brand new game of Theme Hospital or whatever. I just like starting things.
I’ve resisted the temptation to have numerous strict resolutions because I know that will set me up for failure, so I’m going for some ambitious but doable writing targets and some simple personal ones. And if I fall behind on them, I will not give up. I will keep going and do the best I can.
- I will complete the writing resolutions I have just written about on my writing blog. My novels really need to be wrapped up, especially as I have every intention of starting on a new one in November.
- I will continue blogging and improving myself and my life with the grooving mums. It makes me feel a lot better, and I hope that if somebody stumbles upon my blog perhaps they might find something they relate to or find useful.
- I will be honest with myself about how I am doing and about my mental health by keeping a diary of how I am feeling and what I have done during the day, so that I can look back and actually know what’s been going on, rather than guessing that everything’s been totally fine/absolutely dreadful.
So there you have it, my resolutions for this year. I hope that having written them down will help me remember them and encourage me to come back to them and keep trying to do the best I can.
Wishing everybody a happy new year and the best of luck with any resolutions you make!
