Word to the wise.

This is a little late.
6 days into the new year and I've broken a new year resolution already. 
I promised to blog more and this should have been posted on 1st Jan.  

But theres hope for this old girl yet. 
(I say "old", I turned 24 years old 2 weeks ago and I've been struggling to fight the 
strong cravings for tea) 

I've always thought that self reflection is essential but there's something about the start of a new year that gives you the will power to ignore that full tube of ice cream in the freezer calling your name and pick up that exercise mat. Even if it is just for the first month… week. Seriously though, I'm viewing this year as a fresh start. There are two ideals that I'm pushing forward with this year.

1. Bit by bit
I think my constant down fall has been setting massive goals. All or nothing. Initially the enthusiasms high but then I get so daunted by the task ahead that I put it off, talk around it and ultimately forget it. However I've learnt to take things bit by bit.  Small steps may not bring about drastic change but they get you moving. Plus, I've never been much of a runner. 

2. Do what you love
This is my most valued. It took me a long time to learn (and I'm still learning) that the best way to do something long term that your happy with is passion. Do what you love, and unapologetically so.
Co-founding a company, doing what I love, has been one of the highlights of last year. I always wanted to do it but let other things get in the way. Don't regret. 

Have you given yourself any resolutions this year?
What are they?
