Happy New Year

imageI’m the kind of person who likes to write To Do Lists, plan things and create goals and for that reason, I LOVE New Year.

Every December/ January I sit down and look at how I can start over, start afresh, begin again…

Last year was no different. In January I published how I created my goals, what my goals were and my resource list for 2015.

This was followed by a post in April about how I was discarding my goals, and others where I felt like I was lacking in purpose.

As 2015 drew to a close, I stuck with tradition and I looked back at my goals, because even though I had discarded them as goals or resolutions, they do form part of my wish list/ desires/ bucket list and I wanted to see what I have achieved.

I have managed to read some books. Not as many as I would have liked, but nonetheless I’ve managed to read some books.

I have visited a new South East Asia country and I will blog about it in 2016. I have managed to visit some new parts of Japan and the UK over the summer and a city that has been on my Bucket List since I drew up my original Bucket List at the age of 19.

I set myself a challenge and while I didn’t achieve all of it, I am very pleased with the results.

Spiritually, I don’t feel like I’ve grown, but I have found a church I really like and will be attending regularly.

Overall 2015 was a good year. I struggled with Plantar Fasciitus but I am starting the New Year pain free and with a whole lot more understanding and compassion for people who live with pain on a daily basis.


Looking forward to 2016, I will keep using my 2015 goals as they are what I would like to achieve in life. Growing spiritually, growing as a person, improving my relationships, improving my health and fitness, extending my knowledge, exploring this magical world. Striving forward…

Happy New Year Everyone, here’s to a great 2016.


About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
