New Year {New Adventures}

Well, 2013 was quite a year!  Wedding, new home and new job - tick!  So what will 2014 have in store for this wannabe perfect housewife?  Well this New Year I've decided that instead of writing a list of resolutions which will inevitably fall by the wayside by mid February in a bid to do 'more', I'm actually going to resolve to do less.  That's right, less.

So instead of filling my diary to breaking point this year I'm resolving to stop putting pressure on myself to do things and instead focus on quality rather than quantity.  I even thought about ditching the diary altogether but decided this would actually be waaay to stressful so instead I'm going to aim to be happy with a fairly empty diary, use it for the important things plus remember to factor in me time as well as time with Mr H.

I've decided stop focusing on losing 10lbs, being fitter than Jessica Ennis-Hill, having perfect hair, perfect skin, a perfect life and instead focus on living healthily and happily doing the things I love, and just maybe some of these things will start to happen naturally as a consequence.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still planning on having aims and making goals but just with less pressure, that way, in theory, by doing less I may actually end up actually doing and achieving a lot more! It's too easy to run around trying to everything but then actually not achieving anything.  Remember to live in the moment but also embrace the bad days.  

So as my 2014 the bright side calendar says:


And for January:


And best of all, 2014 is already showing promise for lots of mini adventures.... So Happy New Year and watch this space!
