2014 resolution recap

We’re already a week into 2015 and I’m only just getting round to recapping my resolutions from last year! Oh well, the new year doesn’t properly start until I’m back at work anyway, and while I was technically back on Monday, yesterday was another holiday in Germany so I’m only just starting to get back into a routine now. That’s my excuse anyway 😉 So how did I do on last year’s resolutions? Well, I actually only made three, and I managed to stick to them all. Here’s a recap:

  1. Travel more. I wanted to at least make an effort to go on day trips, and I managed that plus much, much more, spending time in 8 different countries over the course of 2014! Taiwan and Vienna were just two of the bigger trips I took, with a few day trips to France (Colmar), Switzerland (Basel) and some new-to-me German towns (Bad Bergzabern) thrown into the mix as well.
  2. Keep not biting my nails. Most of my nails are still not long because they insist on splitting, getting caught on things and just generally being annoying. But I can honestly say I haven’t bitten any of them off. Success!
  3. Enjoy the time I have with my boyfriend and stop worrying so much about the future. It’s difficult for me not to worry about the future… I need to know that what I have right now isn’t all there is! But I think I’ve done a reasonably good job of living in the moment and not nagging about what’s next. And no sooner did I manage to starting living in the moment than something came up that meant Jan had to make a decision about our future together anyway. Oh universe, you’re such a tease!

So that’s three resolutions made and three kept. I do have a number of goals for this year, but I’m still busy finalising and thinking about them, so you’re just going to have to wait for that post – by which time I’m sure you’ll all be completely sick of resolution posts anyway so you’ll most likely never even read mine ;-). Oh well, c’est la vie as the French would say.

  1. I need to stop biting my nails, they looks just atrocious – I can go through a few weeks of relative calm where they start to look like human nails but then as soon as anything stressful happens … done 😛

  2. You really did awesome on traveling around, some great trips! I am the same, I tend to worry about the future instead of enjoying the moment, I am working on being better about it though. A Happy New Year to you!

  3. Yay for keeping to your resolutions! I stopped biting my nails for a few months before getting married so I had nice looking nails for the big day. Yeah bit them off the following day though!! I don’t do any resolutions to be honest. Never been able to stick to any!!

  4. Oh wow i also visited Vienna but to go to Asia and Europe?! Awesome!! I think you exceeded #1. I also like your goal of living in the moment though i am also a planned so cab empathize when someone wants to know the general big picture. 🙂

  5. Well done on keeping your resolutions, especially the last one I’m hugely prone to thinking about the future constantly and failing to live in the moment I don’t know how to switch that off!

    1. Thank you. It’s difficult, but as long as I find something else to keep me occupied I find I can stop myself from thinking too much about what might or might not happen in the future. Right now I’m kind of being forced to think about the future though – at least the next 3-4 months of it! Big changes coming.
