Christmas is in 17 days.. But to be honest, it’s not Christmas I am counting down to.. It is 2015.

I cannot believe how fast a year goes. I feel like as you get older it is as if you are running on a hamster wheel that steadily speeds up over time.
I am not going to start on how hard the year has been or the things that have happened. I am just shocked at the idea of the fact that it is nearly over. 365 days. That is A LOT of days.. If I didn’t know.. I’d say there were 200 in a year.
There is a countdown to resolutions.. Promises.. Things that people are going to commit to change. I’m not like that though.. I never make resolutions. I see the appeal of them.. A new year, a new start kind of thing.. But for me if you are constantly waiting for a new year to have a new start you will get nowhere quickly.

I am welcoming of the new year. I can write a whole paragraph about why it is going to be different and better.. But I know it will be the same. Things will change.. But it won’t be the start of a new year that starts that. I have been working towards my goals; in life, all year. From December 31st over to January 1st.. The only thing that will change for me is the date. I will still work towards what I am working towards now.. I will hopefully be a little closer by then. I won’t make resolutions to go to the gym more.. Or make new friends.. Or get that car I want. I will continue on being me in the hope that I will get better as time goes on and I’ll make those friends and get that car regardless..

There is a countdown in my mind.. Not to signify something new, but to continue working on something I have been working on for years. Think of it as a flow of water, a tap that has been left on. My mind knows it will be a new year, but will work as it has been.. Perhaps maybe even better.

So Christmas is in 17 days.. The New Year in 24..

Bring. It. On.

  1. I’ve never failed to keep a resolution, basically because it’s the same one every year – to be a cheeky little bleeder.
