So, there’s yet another year round the corner. Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself. And also, apparently, when you’re just living your life and getting older!
Not that there’s anything not to enjoy, but as I age I just accept that nothing immensely exciting happens from one week to the next. And that’s fine. But it does involve looking on the bright side. I could sit and complain that I have this notebook:
and nothing to write in it…..
BUT, what would be the point in lamenting it. Or that I don’t have piles of money, or go on magnificent holidays, or eat in decadent restaurants every week. I’d just end up depressed and miserable.
Instead, in 2018, I will continue to try and be grateful for what I do have, which is a lot. And I will do my level best to remain positive and look on the bright side. And not take on the negative thoughts of other people. There’s so much mean mindedness in the world, and people who turn a nice thing into a bloody miserable thing, that a lovely thing to me could end up being the worst thing ever, if I took on board what other people said. I know what I enjoy and like, and I don’t need anyone making it unenjoyable.
I might not have anything real to write in my journal, but I’m going to seek out some wee romantic things, poems and the like, to write, IN CALLIGRAPHY, which I am obviously going to learn in 2018. And, then I shall eat a big bowl of pasta, which I shall learn how to make in the next few days. All whilst managing with never having a full nights sleep again because of these two
For New Years Eve, I will do what I do every year. Force myself to stay up till midnight and then go to bed! I’ll have to find a movie because like every year, there is nothing on TV worth watching. I’ll drink a few glasses of wine and eat crisps until I’m full. The family are going for lunch in 2 hours (I should probably get out of bed….) in honour of my mums birthday 2 days ago. And tomorrow, mum and I are going to see Star Wars – (I haven’t told her that I have already seen it), and we shall eat popcorn and Cadburys Whole Nut chocolate from this selection box
Happy New Year. May we all be here in 12 months time, looking forward to time continuing to fly by. It’ll be 2020 before we know it.
