I want to get a tattoo, just a small one, I want it to say Invictus which is a Latin word meaning unbroken, unsubdued and invincible. I want that word because I am unbroken, I’ve survived all sorts of illness, and trials and tribulations and I have emerged if not with a smile on my face at least with some nice lipstick……..
So what does that have to do with resolutions I hear you ask? it has everything to do with it! I’m sure that like me you have made resolutions in the past and by February ( or January 5th if you are me!) they are a thing of the past because they are too difficult or you don’t have time….
But here’s the thing: you are dropping that little resolution at the same time as working, looking after children, elderly relatives, housework and in some cases dealing with your own ill health! You organised Christmas and will be doing birthdays, holidays, play dates, MOTs and everything else that happens in your house. You are already INVICTUS!!!! You are INVINCIBLE!!! That little resolution is nothing compared to what you already achieve!!!
At this point there are a million and one motivational quotes I could give you that would illustrate this point but I want to give you something real, said by a real woman, here’s the Great British Bake Offs winner, Nadia to say it better than anyone………
So lets say it together, say it loud! I can and I will!
Here’s to 2016, let it be the best year yet!
