2015 – No Explosions

It’s the same every year, everyone is setting themselves up for a new start as the clock turns midnight and I join the band waggon of setting myself up to fail.

Push ups, sit-ups, running, quit smoking or just be a better person. Most people start off with great intentions and some actually achieve their new year goals but the majority however fail.

The good thing about failing on your New Years resolutions is it is almost always a very quiet and none eventful failure. No explosions and nobody dies. The only person that even knows that you have failed in your quest is you.

I would like to think that my creative side is the thing that drives me choice of what my New Years resolution should be. My previous years failed attempts were, Flickr 365, Beverage 365 (because everyone has a drink a day), Blog post per day and 100 push-ups (I had an app).

Everyone of my attempts started well then fizzled out as expected. Early last year however just after my New Years resolution has failed. I decided to stop smoking cigarettes and switch to Vaping; more importantly I bloody did it. Then in September me and my family got the option to uproot and move 200 miles away from my home town for the last 35 years leaving everything that was normal behind us…. And I bloody did it.

This year I’m not setting a New Years resolution; but I will be more creative. I’m not going to sign up for some gym membership; but I will be healthier. No explosions. Nobody will die. Not a better person.

Happy New Year

Frozen New Year

The new year is here and lets be honest 2009 is going to be all about the money….. well lack of it.

Frozen New Year

As we land into 2009, House prices are falling, the UK VAT rate is all over the place, Banks are going under and retailers on the high street are going under like its going out of fashion.  While everyone is starting to thinking about how to achieve their New Year Resolutions I was wondering how many peoples New Year Resolutions are all about getting themselves sorted finically; instead of just ditching pork pies from their bellies.

Lets be honest if something’s going to go tits up in your finances its a high chance that its going to happen this years.  You could ether sort it out and get out of debt or you could just screw it; pretend that everything is going to be ok and prepare for the worst.

Personally I’m going to work my nuts off, make the most of my time and do it with a big fat smile on the face the whole time.

This year I am restarting my mission post one picture per week for the whole of the year.  Any one interested join in at http://www.flickr.com/groups/pic52/
