My New Year's Resolutions.


First let me start off by wishing you a happy new year! I hope you rung out 2015 like a champ and nursed yourself back to life on the 1st. I've done a post like this for the past couple of years and I thought I'd jot down some things which I aim to tweak in the months ahead, because here it comes, new year new you and all that jazz. OI WITH THE CLICHES ALREADY - oh wait actually, here's some more:

Eat Vegan
Okay, so I'm going to be doing a whole video on this subject so sit tight for that one but in short this is the biggest thing I'll be changing in my life - shifting from a vegetarian to vegan diet. It's something I've been giving real thought to throughout the entirety of 2015 and it's something I'm not only ready to commit to, but something I truly want to do and will be good for my soul. Well, that got deep quickly.

Be More Selfish
Sounds like an odd'un, but it kind of links to my first point - I spent the whole year not doing something I really wanted to do because I didn't want to inconvenience others, and that's been a running trend throughout the past year for me: I didn't strive for my own happiness amidst my quarter life crisis and so I was unhappy. I'm not someone who has a sunny disposition and I know happiness isn't a constant state, so I want to learn to throw caution to the wind and put myself first from time to time.

Take Care & Focus.
I'm sure this featured last year, but I need to stop being so slapdash with everything, be it my blog, my work, my relationships with people. I'm literally sat here rotating my fleeting attention between three fucking screens whilst I'm tapping this post out, and I know we're all suffering from 21st Century induced ADHD, an age in which we're pressed to give 6 seconds of our time to a video. I want to take time and put real care into the things I decide are worth it, which in turn it will need me to pull my finger out of my ass and focus.

Explore Some More
I've been lucky in my little life to be able to hop on planes and see some really cool corners of the earth but I feel like my travels will never be done. I have a car, I have a passport, truly what is stopping me? Seriously, what is stopping me? Myself, that's what. No more will my days off be spent in bed 'til god knows when, I'm gonna go get myself out there.

I think all of those are realistic right, right?
