New Year Resolutions – Reflections and New Promises

My 2018 New Year’s Resolutions…

Hello Everyone,

So, it’s the first day of January again and lots of people are busy making New Year’s Resolutions. Are you?

How many of these look familiar? I know that the first couple, lose weight and get fit are ALWAYS something that I say to myself each January!

Last year, as part of my Winter Solstice/Yule celebration, my friends and I made our own promises as a thank you for all the blessings that we had received the previous year. Beforehand we had all agreed that although our promises would be personal to each of us, the effects or consequences of them should benefit others and/or the environment.

If you remember, I promised to shop conscientiously.

Well, I did. I paid more attention to where things came from, if items were ethically sourced, had fair trade logos, were organically produced, had a low carbon footprint, were locally produced in season, that sort of thing…

By the end of 2017, I think that I managed to balance keeping my conscience clear and my purse happy, I feel that my 2017 Yule promise was a success!

It’s the little things that we can do each and every day that can cause the greatest change and I plan to continue my promise again this year.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and rewarding 2018.

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -
