Pages of 2016

7 January 2016

January begins and already the weather has been pretty awful. Plenty of rain, wind and cold temperatures. It's not the kind of weather an umbrella can stand that's for sure! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a happy New Year. Now it's onto the pages of 2016.

I'm not really into resolutions. Things change and there are going to be indecisive moments no matter what. However there's always the big 'To-Do' list. Unlike a resolution, that list can change as many times as you want without feeling guilty about it. I simply write down the things I need, want and wish to get done. I tend to write lists for each month, I guess you could also call them 'goals' for the month, if I don't complete one then I simply move it to the next month or change it up a bit. I have lots of different goals that I'd be very happy to complete, it also gives me that extra motivation to do the things I want to achieve.

My to-do lists will probably include the things I should have done last year. I know we shouldn't dwell on the past but last year was tough. I was too indecisive and I don't think I was really clear on what I was set out to do. No one ever really wants to make the same mistakes, so writing to-do lists will allow me to create a plan I can work on.

As well as writing a to-do list I have my journal. I had loads of pages left from 2015 so I have decided to split the journal up into 15/16, I didn't want to have to leave my diary unfinished with lots of blank pages. I remember buying this diary for my A Level art project two years back, for a 'personal diary' project. I needed a diary that looked authentic and would work beautifully for my photography. But I use it now as my occasional place to write my thoughts, any personal to-do lists and even quotes for that extra motivation!

Hopefully the weather will calm. After a few days stuck indoors I managed to get out a few times during this week. It's been nice just to get out to stretch my legs and get some fresh air.

I should start on that to-do list!

Does anyone have any big plans? Any to-do lists that need writing?
