One Thing This Year...

Monday, January 8, 2018

If you have been reading exPress-o for a while, you probably know that I'm not one for making New Year's resolutions. I always fail to keep them and feel dreadful afterwards, so by now I learnt to stay away from making a list of promises. Plus, I've been dreading January this year more than ever before. I don't know why, there is something about it that doesn't sit well with me:) I find it rather long, cold and somewhat uninspiring. Am I the only one? Having said that, ever since 2012, instead of setting myself up for disappointment right off the bet, I changed the rules and went for little challenges instead.

Six years ago it was all about solo eating, followed by slowly but surely simplifying my lifegoing back to basicsbeing more present each dayletting go of unrealistic expectations, and last year I finally indulged in a bit of self care.

This year, however, my plan is to learn how to prioritize. Balazs and I are huge people-pleasers, who always put the needs and wishes of others before our own. Sounds familiar? So this year, we are hoping to find a middle ground, where we can 'do us' while still being there for everything and everyone.

So, I'm ready to do just that! How about you? Making any resolutions this year? What are they? Fancy joining in the challenge?

P.S: 10 minutes a day.
P.P.S: One day!

I've actually decided not to make any resolutions. Not that I think I am perfect but to be honest I am content with my life and self. Sure I want to lose that 10 pounds I put on during the holidays but to me that isn't really resolution necessary. I hope all goes well on your journey. Balance is always a tough one to manage but so necessary. Cheers to a wonderful 2018

I feel the same about the first month of the new year. Resolutions are something I don't do, you can start to change the things you want to change every day of the year in my opinion :-)
