Words, Quotes, Lyrics: #6

If you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.Music Quote by Penny Lane, Almost Famous

Ultimate favourite film? Almost Famous. What’s funny about my love for this film is that it kind of became my life. Like William I spent so much time with my favourite musicians that they became my friends, so this quote is quite literal for me. It’s hard when you only see the people you love once a year at best, but I can always visit a part of them by sticking on my headphones.

Not New Year’s Resolutions

Moccasin Boots

I ran out of time to post these at the start of the year, but as time went on I liked the idea of not proclaiming them as New Year’s resolutions and instead just having them as Anytime Resolutions.

To find an appropriate weight that works for me, that I can stick to. It’s been a difficult couple of years for me with health problems and family stresses added to trying to become self employed and work on my business full time. Working on getting fit just hasn’t been able to be a priority for me and my weight has gone up and down. I currently feel better than I have for a very long time and it’s because I feel healthy. I think it’s important to eat well, but not diet. To exercise in a way that makes you feel good, not pressured. I’m pretty sure I’ve found my balance, but I’ll write about that some more another time.

– This is a double; To support small businesses and to keep in better touch with faraway friends. I was going to list these separately, but then I came up with a fun idea that kills two birds with one stone. I have friends from Edinburgh to London, from Michigan to Tennessee and all the way out to New Zealand and in this day of online communication, I suck at keeping in touch with them! Instead of e-mail, I’m going to bring back snail mail and for each person’s birthday I’m going to send one handmade gift and one gift purchased from a small business.

Handmade, Gift Wrap

To get shit done. I started this towards the end of last year – I took a photography class, I visited a friend in Cornwall, instead of saying, “I’d love to do that someday” I made that someday into today. I think this has kind of faded a little recently, but I want to bring it back. Doing stuff feels amazing!!

Be happier. The 100 Happy Days challenge has taught me that happiness is a choice and while I may be someone who automatically focuses on the bad, I really want to try and flip that upside down. Instead of failing by not doing something, completing it should be an achievement. Instead of remembering the tears, I want to focus on what made them stop.

And that’s it. These may seem like simple things, but I think it’s important to start small and achievable and who knows, maybe in 6 months I’ll add some new ones because there’s no reason I need to wait until the New Year.

What do you think of New Year’s Resolutions? Do you think we should make more of an effort for the rest of the year?
