2017, Thoughts and Such…

I’m not making any New Years Resolutions this year.  Nor am I setting a “focus word” or doing any of the other major new year, new me things that people post about on the Internet.

I am continuing to work towards the goals on my 101 in 1001 list (which I’ve made a conscious decision not to share here). I get on a lot better with that sort of goal lust than any other.  Or so experience has taught me.  Without checking the list as I can’t be bothered to get it from my bedroom I think I’ve completed 4, have 3 in vague states of planning and have just started another 1 today.   Oh and I looked into one goal but have had to put it on hold for this year.

I also have some very short term goals – this months is read more and write more.

At the moment 2017 looks uninteresting, I don’t anticipate any major changes in my life and don’t have anything hugely exciting planned to look forward to. Uninteresting is kinda good in a way but I’m hoping to get plans for fun things to lookforward   to booked in the next week or so.

I think the biggest thing I’d like for 2017 is for it to be better than 2016 was. But when I stop and properly think about it, as difficult as 2016 was with deaths and broken wheelchairs and other problems it was also a year of good times, brilliant experiences and a couple of new friends. And that’s what matters.

I posted this on facebook last night but think it’s worth sharing here too.  

2016 by the numbers:

6 deaths. And Milo had to be put to sleep

2 new wheelchairs

66 books read (or 21,265 pages)

5 trips to the cinema

I don’t know how many trips to theatre/musicals/comedy

2 West End Musicals

2 print and 1 online edition of Tenants Times

5 trips to Birmingham 

5 visits to London

1 day in Bournemouth

Countless trips to Oxford or Reading

All in all it’s been tricky at times but it’s been one good year.
