I'm not very good at New Years.

Don't get me wrong I love the event. Ceilidhs are a, not so secret, love of mine. A tradition I have participated in every year (save one particularly odd new year) since I was a child. This year I attended two!

 I also enjoy New Year's reputation of being a "new start". I read in a book once, that every cell in the human body is renewed every 6 months, meaning you basically have a new body every 6 months, meaning we have the opportunity to "recreate" or change ourselves every 6 months. Now i'm not sure this fact is accurate, but as I have previously stated: if I enjoy believing a 'lie' and it impacts positively on my mindset I have no problem letting myself believe it. I digress... So I appreciate improving my life and making positive changes, and i understand as weird human animals we enjoy the encouragement of events and dates and designated times to change. However, i struggle with the deadline. I suck at deadlines. I also suck at change. Thus I try and achieve change by making myself accountable to people- cue blog. Also i encourage myself with change by taking it slowly and giving myself props to make it easier and more enjoyable- cue calendar and map.

This is my poster calendar. Its the calendar i have wished to own for 3 years. It is also incredibly difficult to find if, like me, you can't keep up with how quickly new year comes and goes thus you find yourself in February when every shop has sold out of calendars. I finally acquired this one online and am now hoping it helps me to stop double booking myself.

On my search for my poster calendar i came across this world map for £2.50!! Its bigger than me! I like maps. This is another item i have been in search of, since i was 12 years old, in fact. My current goal in life is to travel the world. This 'prop' shall help encourage and focus me... i hope.

So here is to starting my year, perhaps a little late, aiming to be a more organised and reliable person and focused on achieving my dream.
