2018? Another year gone. Time certainly does fly as you get older!

I’ve seen so many “New Year, New Me” posts across the whole of social media over the past week and while it is nice to see people setting goals for the year ahead, how many of them are realistic?

I know I’m guilty of it. It’s easy to get swept away with the glamour of new diaries and blank calendars and think “this is the year I….. <whatever>” But then the real world kicks back in, the mundane day to day stuff and it’s easy to get sidetracked. To put things off til tomorrow, til Monday, til… well any day that isn’t today.

I’ve tried to keep that in mind while setting myself goals for 2018. I like having targets to aim for but I can get downhearted if they turn out to be unachievable. So I’ve dialled it back this year. No big sweeping status, no grandiose plans. Just a list of things I’d like to do in the house, things I’d like to do with the kids and things I’d like to work on personally.

I hope to write here a lot more often and I’d like to share with you both the work we are doing in the house and the steps we are taking to live a more sustainable life. And I’d love it if you would join us as we negotiate the unknown that is 2018.

I wish you all a healthy and happy new year.

  1. I made a decision several years back that “New Years Resolutions” are not for me – it had begun to feel like that rigidity was simply setting me up to fail, and I was through with failure, so last year I went for “small changes” instead – and it really worked for me. I’ve done the same again for this year – although I reckon I’ll be hard pushed to make the same sort of impact I did in year 1!

    1. This is a great way to do it. Small changes all add up. Good luck to you this year. You had a fantastic year last year but don’t let that put you off. You can (and will) do great things this year too x
