I hope you all had a good festive period and you are ready to start a new year so far?
Paul and I have been incredibly lucky to do some amazing things both personally and professionally in 2014 but it is all bitter sweet as we lost my beloved Grandma so close to Christmas.
I don’t believe in this whole New Year, New Me pressure or setting resolutions. I make my personal and professional attainable goals list instead. A bit more like a to-do list, without the drama.
One thing I am going to be doing in 2015 is taking more time to enjoy the smaller things in life and to help with this, I am starting a happiness jar.
Using a jar or box, the idea is to write down a brief note every time something good happens or makes you happy. Little simple things you could easily over look. You collect these up over the year on on New Years Eve you open the jar and read back through them all.
My jar is a retro cut glass decanter that used to be my Grandma’s but it is looking a little sorry for itself at the moment, all empty and forlorn but I am confident it will fill up soon.
Whatever you plan for 2015, don’t forget to be the very best version of yourself.
