Why I will be trying everything and anything in 2021

First and foremost, I hope everyone reading this had a lovely Christmas, I know it was so different this year for lots of people due to the recently introduced Tier 4 restrictions for London and the South East. This years Christmas wasn’t what some people had planned but I hope you all managed to find at least some joy or happiness in the smallest of things.

I have been doing a lot of reflecting recently about the past year and I’ve come to the conclusion that I have held myself back from a lot of things that I have wanted to try and talked myself out of for a lot of different reasons. Some of these things are career orientated, wanting to start something but not wanting to fail, being scared of wasting my time, not knowing how it will turn out. If I don’t try or start somewhere then how will I ever know? How will I know if I would enjoy it or if I would be successful?

My partner asked me the other day what my New Years resolutions might be this year, my first thought and answer was to bite the bullet and not hold myself back in 2021. I have thought of starting a few new ventures this past year, a new hobby and possible career change but I have talked myself out of it incase it’s the wrong decision or incase nothing comes from it and I end up wasting my time. But time is not wasted if you are enjoying yourself right? So as long as I am enjoying myself then some could say that I am successful?

That is why this year, my New Years resolution is to not be scared to try new things, don’t think about something for too long that I end up talking myself out of it, try everything and anything that comes my way. Yes, it might not work out and I may fail but what if I am successful, what if I enjoy said thing? Surely after such a terrible year, that’s all that matters. I need to stop living to timelines and schedules and just go for it, until then I will never know how different my life may be!

I would love to know what your New Year’s resolutions may be this year? Have you reflected on this past year? If so, what are your conclusions?

I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe it prompted you to reflect and think about what you want for 2021.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Great read and an interesting post. I like how you say time wasted is not a waste if you’re enjoying yourself. I think it’s also just about experience and growth and after all life is for living. I wouldn’t say i have a resolution although my priority for the new year is just to look after myself and make time for me outside of work and family expectations etc. I wrote a reflective post similar to this one so I’ve been in a very reflective mood.

    1. That is so true, I think sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in lives expectations that you forget life is for living and enjoying yourself. That is a great priority, something we should all do more of ☺️
