Resolve Those Resolutions!

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……..image

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!

Clean Sheets For All Of Us

It has been freeezzinnggg at WDS HQ the last few days! Our lovely woods have been rendered Narnia like by the hardest of frosts, magically clean, white and sparkling.

Everything looked brand new,

And that’s what we get tomorrow a clean, sparkling new year, a year in which we can do everything or nothing, a year to go to the gym 6 times a week or once a month or never.

So when you write those New Years resolutions, remember if you don’t achieve them this year, you will get a whole new one on 1.1.16 and can try again. It’s not how many times we fail, it’s how many times we try.

Happy New Year

kisses
