It’s that time of the year again. It only rolls around once every 365 days but when it does, it feels like someone sped time up and BAM, it’s New Year’s Day.
It’s also the time of the year where one is faced with the one same question from family, friends and work colleagues… “What’s your new year’s resolution?”. In my case, the first time it is asked I am stumped, having been too caught up in the festivities of the silly season to have thought about it. By the time the third or fourth person asks me I may have given it some thought and, by the time the tenth person asks me, I’ve probably made a few, already broken them and resent having to make a resolution in the first place.
But this year is a little different…
I wish I had the thought my friend had with her resolution, to write 2014 as the date instead of 2013. Ingenious. Instead, my goal for the next 12 months (and hopefully longer into the future) is to share all the wonderful things I hope to experience this coming year. It may seem ironic, given my lacklustre commitment to leave the grind behind over the past year, but it wasn’t until a good friend told me how much she missed reading the weekly snippets into my life. It seems blogging may be more desirable than Facebook for friends wanting to keep in the loop with your life.
So here I am, back in the online world of WordPress and excited about what posts will be typed up over the coming months. In the bank already are numerous food photos waiting to be uploaded and on the travel front, a trip overseas and one closer to home are sure to result in stories I can’t wait to share.
So happy new year to you all, may your 2014 be filled with good food, great fun and gorgeous friends!
