I origionally published this on my old blog on New Year's Day, but I'd like to share it on here too, even if some of what is said doesn't make as much sense now. Anyway, the post:
1st January 2017
"At the beginning of each year most of us plan to undergo resolutions, making promises to ourselves which are usually forgotten as the year unfolds. We get wrapped up in the cocoon of life, forgetting our previous motives. This is why, this year, I have made the decision not to set resolutions in the form of goals, but to set one main aim, which I hope encompasses everything my usual resolutions would be aiming to achieve. I aim to be happy.
I feel like, that in the grand scheme of things, hapiness is something we are all attempting to achieve. Whether that be through the means of money, becoming healthier, or working harder. I am aware that the upcomng year is inevitably going to be a difficult year for me, therefore, I don’t know how achievable my aim will be, but I’m certainly going to try. As for you; I hope 2017 will be kind to you, I hope that you enjoy every second:
Happy New Year."
