Today 2013 has arrived; it’s the season of making resolutions and then, generally, breaking them shortly after. I stopped making them a long time ago. In fact, the last one I ever made was to stop smoking one New Years Eve. That was twenty years ago and I haven’t smoked since which proves they can be kept if the desire is strong enough.The fact that you can as easily break a resolution as make one seems to be the problem for me.
However, I do make plans and I have dreams and ideas so maybe it’s the same thing. What’s in a name?
This year will be a bit different in so far as my full-time job is being made redundant at the end of March and as I only have a couple of years to go before retirement I have some pretty important decisions to make.
- Look for another job – but in the present climate and considering my age it’s unlikely to happen.
- Become a full-time writer – I am not convinced I have the skills for this.
- Retire – No going to happen as I don’t feel ready for that yet.
- Work freelance as a training consultant – needs lots of marketing and networking.
At the moment I feel the best alternative for me is the last one so that’s where my energies will be focused over the next couple of months. But I have to write too so that means I’ll be juggling with time a bit, after all, I will still be working until March as well.
So all in all, the early part of 2013 looks to be a very busy year for me.
I hope you all get what you want from this year and those dreams and wishes you have come true
Wishing you all the best in 2013! Congrats on quitting smoking 20 years ago ~ awesome!
Thanks Jill all the best to you and yours. I hope 2013 is good to you
