New year, improve me

It’s with a lot of trepidation that I have decided to set myself some new years resolutions. There is always the risk that even with the best intentions, once work kicks in and the Christmas/New Year cheer is boxed away, resolutions get forgotten but I am determined not to let that happen this year because my goal is ultimately to be happy and cherish every moment.
Last year was one of the worst I can remember, something bad seemed happen every month. My state of mind suffered and as a result this blog too, which in turn added to my guilt and bad feeling since I felt  I lost  something that before had given me a lot of joy and focussed my energy.

So this year with being happy at the top of my list my other resolutions are:

1. Post here at least three times a week
Three seems like a reasonable number for me to produce quality posts, I am aiming for Monday, Wednesday and Friday with posts at the weekend too if I am super efficient. 

2. Read more 
I miss reading books, newspapers, magazines and blogs. If I can I would like to spend at least half and hour a day reading, alternating between different types of media. 

3. Be efficient 
I got myself into some very bad habits last year, choosing to procrastinate over working and then rushing to do the things I needed to do. This year I want to be organised again, use my time wisely and generally not feel lazy.

4. Master the crow 
I took up yoga last summer and I am determined that by this time next year I will be a master of this move — take a look at it here. I can currently hold it for about half a second before toppling over.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank those of you that read this blog regularly, I am grateful that you have stuck around despite my awful lack of consistency and to those of you that have recently started to follow, thank you and I hope you stick around.

I hope that everyone has had a lovely festive season and that 2014 is happy, healthy and successful for all.

With love,
