I’ve been sloppy. I’ve been unfocused. I’ve binged. I’ve splurged my money; and I think I’ve actually managed to gain double the amount of weight I put on over Christmas. Once again, any “resolutions” I’ve made have fast gone out the window.

January’s over and there’s a new month upon us. So that means the January blues will just vanish, right?

February is usually my ‘downfall month’. I have a history with mental health and it usually all resurfaces in February and November (I’ve never known why it’s those two months and I maybe never will). But this time I’m not looking at the next 28 days with dread, I’m looking at them with optimism. 

I’m going to wake up. I’m going to seize the opportunities coming my way. I’m going to get my shit together. I’m going to look at this coming month as a brand new fresh start; and hopefully I might once and for all beat my February curse.

In 28 days time, I want to be able to tell you how proud I am of everything I’ve achieved this month and be ready to take the rest of the year by the balls.

So, after an absolute write off of a first month, I guess that all that’s left to say is Happy New Year… Again?
