Self Portrait Challenge this month is New Years resolutions, so I thought that I might try and come up with one new resolution every week.
New Year's eve passed this year with barely a ripple. We didn't go out or celebrate in any special way. I made nori rolls for dinner and we watched Day of the Triffids on DVD. As G was working today and had to get up early, we were in bed before midnight. Lying there listening to the neighbours in the street across the road set off illegal fireworks, I made my first resolution. To celebrate more. I think I've said it before but we're not overly good at celebration in my family. I'm not thinking fancy, but just of finding a way to make more of birthdays and holidays. To step out of the ordinary routine and make things a little special every now and then. I suppose I could come up with a list of actions to support that resolution, as suggested on the radio, but that's a little close to corporate planning for me. So I'm just going to keep the thought there in the back of my mind and make a little effort when required.
And if anyone's thinking of taking up the Self Portrait Challenge this year, I'd say yes, give it a go. I've found it strangely addictive and quite rewarding in some unexpected ways. It's also really easy. You just go to the middle column of the site, read the particpant info link and then go to the meta section at the bottom and login. Once you have a login it's super easy to load a link each week.
So happy New Year everyone, may your year ahead be filled with peace, happiness and other good things...
PS I'm posting early because well, it's new years day and I'm in the mood for new yearsy sort of things. My own little celebration if you will. I'll upload to the SPC site once the last weeks have been archived and then we'll be able to go and check out everyone elses resolutions.
PPS Finally uploaded. Seems SPC site is working again. So head on over. There's lots of interesting new year's resolutions.
