Here’s the thing about res­o­lu­tions that I don’t like – they’re tall prom­ises from me to me that never seem to see the light of day. And, still like a bad habit, I keep mak­ing them De­cem­ber in and De­cem­ber out, hop­ing that on Jan­uary 1, a par­tic­u­larly rough 31st night later, I’ll sud­denly wake up ready to hit the gym, drink green juice and swear off sugar for­ever. In re­al­ity, you’ll find me un­der the cov­ers chow­ing down McDon­ald’s and binge-watch­ing Net­flix like it’s my full-time job.

So, here’s what WILL be dif­fer­ent about my

2019. I’m go­ing to do away with the res­o­lu­tions rig­ma­role and try to stick to just the thing I do best – be­ing happy. Whether that means eat­ing a pint of Haa­gen Dazs in bed (the cof­fee-flavoured one if you’re ask­ing), in­dulging in that slice of cake I earned after a hard week or, if I’m feel­ing par­tic­u­larly am­bi­tious, go­ing for a Barry’s Boot­camp sesh (they’re ac­tu­ally quite fun), I’ll do what makes me feel good in that mo­ment. And, I will NOT overthink, over prom­ise or put my­self un­der any un­nec­es­sary pres­sure. Life is hard enough as it is. If choco­late fudge eases my angst, so be it.

Here’s to a great year. I’m sud­denly re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.
