Now that the snow has gone the Welsh terrain is turning into its usual state of brown slippery soggy mud everywhere. It makes walks much harder work – I bring home 3lbs of mud on each boot every time! I walked into town for some shopping this morning, and met lots of friendly dogs along the way, which always puts a smile on my face! I did think people seemed more cheerful than usual today – many more people saying hello and smiling than there sometimes is, I don’t know if that’s festive spirits of just ‘tomorrow’s a bank holiday’ spirits!
I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, because I don’t stick to them and then get all self-loathing / depressed at being crap. I have weight I want to lose (didn’t dare weigh today because I don’t want to know how much weight!!!) but that’s just the on-going weight control agenda that runs from year to year and doesn’t need to be linked to a specific holiday. I do have one thing I want to try to change about myself though – I admit I’ve no clue how to go about it, so any suggestions would be gratefully received! I have a strong tendency to brood over stuff and hold grudges, or worry about the future and extrapolating future problems from past incidents – I want to learn to live more in the moment, put the worries off until they’re needed, and not borrow trouble. Hopefully I can learn to enjoy my life a little more this way, what do you think?
