So this year, I’m keeping it simple. No more resolutions that read like a list of punishments. Thanks to the lovely Kate Shapland, my main beauty/health resolution is to “be more active”. While I know targeted specific goals are most likely to be successful ones, I know this rather vague one is one I can stick to and not feel like a failure when I haven’t roused myself out of bed, again, for that 6am run in the pouring rain, in the dark, in the freezing cold….. you get my drift.
No, this year, I resolve to be nicer to myself. To give myself more time. To concentrate on being content with what I have, not constantly hankering after more, more, more. I’ll make time to meditate, to actually get round to doing yoga, to do more baking, wash my make-up brushes more regularly, actually luxuriate and enjoy my fragranced candles, invest more time on my skin, spend more time with family and with friends that I really want to see, basically, to be a little selfish and do the things that make me happy. If I’m less stressed and a happier person, then surely I’ll be a nicer person to be around?
So I guess you could say my New Year Resolution for 2013 is make proper, quality time for the things and the people I love.
I’d love to know what you think of all this, and what, if any, your resolutions were this year, beauty or otherwise?
