So it’s a new year, we’re in 2013, hip, hip hooray!
With a New Year comes the associated ideas of a new beginning, a fresh start, a clean break. January 1st always brings with it that sense of hope that the days and months ahead will yield successful results in our health, relationships, finances and goals. It also provides us with an ideal opportunity to re-invent ourselves and change our lives. Whilst it’s true that we can change our ways on any day such as a rainy April 19th, there’s always something special and significant about doing so on the first day of the first month of a new year don’t you think? The time just feels right.
This opportunity for change however, is often overlooked and we continue living according to the same routine we’ve held for several months, if not years. News flash! Having a roast chicken sandwich from M&S and a tall skinny latte from Starbucks is so 2012! Change it up! We’ve all heard the age old saying ‘life is short’, so why do people, myself included, still live without seeing, eat without tasting, live without feeling. We hang out with the same people, take the same journeys, style our hair in the same way and simply carry on living a repetitive lifestyle. Whatever happened to exploring and trying out new things? This year, I say we take a stand.
Let’s add some sparkle and excitement to our lives and change what has become the status quo. No more buying the same groceries every week, no more going to the same hang-outs, no more sticking to the same “clique”. This year 2013, let’s all try new things, meet new people, and ignite our taste buds, it’s sure to be fun!
