2015 – let’s do this! {Worry Less Live More}

I usually make a fairly long list of New Year’s Resolutions, nothing outrageous, just things like read more, pick up my violin every now and again, do aerobics once a week. You get the gist. Although I make a valiant effort at the beginning of the year, inevitably my enthusiasm dwindles as the months go on and by the time winter rolls round again I can barely remember the resolutions I set for myself 11 months previous.

So this year I’m going to try something different. One (moderately) big change. The clue is in the title…

I want 2015 to be the year I ‘stop worrying and start living’ (to borrow the words of Dale Carnegie). I have always been a worrier, and often I think it does hold me back from doing things or from enjoying things to the full. But now I have Rosalie, and I’m nearly 32 for goodness sake, I think it’s time to kick my worry into touch.

Dale Carnegie Quote

Today is the tomorrow I worried about yesterday, and guess what? Everything turned out just fine!

I reckon that my worry is connected to confidence, positivity and gratitude, so I will be hoping to address these too. I intend to start keeping a gratitude journal to keep me focused on the happy realities rather than worrying about the maybes.

So that’s my resolution for the new year. What about you?

I hope you all have a brilliant, happy and productive 2015!

    What a great quote!

    I think motherhood increases our worry levels a hundred fold. There are so many ways in which we're made to feel inadequate as mums that eventually we start doubting other aspects of our lives too. I say that 2015 should be the year we all cut ourselves some slack and blow a massive raspberry at our worries. 🙂

    Thanks Vickie, I totally agree, becoming a mum has only made me worry more, but that's not a good example to set so I'll join you in blowing that raspberry! x

    I tend to worry to much too so this is a great resolution that everyone could follow. Writing a gratitude journal is a great idea! Happy New Year!
