Ok, maybe I left it a bit long to do a ‘new year’ post. Forgive me, I’ve been revising and stuff. Anyway, lets get into it…
January is a time for reflection, or so people say. I’ve made a few resolutions, one of which I have already failed. I think, instead of telling yourself what you shouldn’t do, you should think about who you really are. It’s good to start the year with an honest evaluation of your life, and go from there.
Have a look at the questions below; I’ve answered a few. Repost the following questions on your blog, or comment with the answer to your favourite question. Think about what you are good at, and what you like, and do more of it. Think about what you want to do with your life. That’s all you need to do. Not say to yourself ‘must go to gym 10 times a week, give up all chocolate, and be a better person’.
(Questions originally from here. I didn’t write them, check out the real thing!)
