Hello 2016. Hello new resolutions.

Another year, another set of resolutions. I love it! Some people aren’t too keen on new years resolutions, but I find new year a great time to reassess goals or ambitions I have, habits I’ve got into that I want to change, or just try something I haven’t done before. And whilst I love a challenge, and will definitely try my hardest at these, it’s also healthy to not be tied to them, if I don’t do that well, it’s ok, I’ll try again next year!

So here’s a brief review of how 2015 went:

  1. Run every day. This lasted until the start of April.
  2. Draw a picture every day. Lasted until the end of June.
  3. Read at least 1 Bible chapter every day. Patchy, definitely not every day.
  4. Invite more people into our home. We did pretty well at this I think, but can always improve. Always be hospitable.
  5. Look at my phone less before bed. This one goes up and down, probably didn’t try that hard with that one, started well, tailed off.
  6. Read more. This one never really got going!

And now, 2016.

I’ve tried to be a bit more specific; but reduce the daily commitments, they became a bit of a pressure. Here they are:

  1. Read 4 books. Might not seem like much, but for me that’s a lot!
  2. Run at least 2 official races. Hopefully the Bristol half marathon and another one.
  3. Learn some Italian. Quite vague, but I’ve downloaded Duolingo already, it’s great.
  4. Complete our daily Bible reading book. I bought Emma a daily-reading type of book, 3 days in and it’s brilliant.
  5. Eat more natural. Trying to reduce those processed foods.
  6. Be more on time. I’m a bit of a late person, but that’s going to change.
  7. Adventure. Very unspecific, so we’ll see how this one goes!

Here’s to another year.
