How good to start the new year?

The end of the year is a great time to close a chapter and enter a new year with new ideas. Accumulated throughout the year matters that are worth finishing to enter the new year with a fresh mind and a "blank card". New Year's Eve is not only fun for me, although to be honest I prefer to spend New Year's Eve at home with Piotr and our ears or friends, but also a good time to stop for a moment and look at everything from a different perspective.

How good to start the new year?

Minimalism in practice

For some time I became interested in the subject of minimalism. It started with clothing minimalism and Joanna Glogazy's book 'Slow life', which I wrote about here. This book gave me food for thought and inspired me to act. I always wanted to have more - more clothes, more cosmetics, a larger apartment (this has not changed). This rush after more at some point began to shoot me out. I had more, but the quality left much to be desired. At some point I realized that quantity does not count, but quality. Apparently I knew about it for a long time, but only recently I began to understand it really.

If someone came to our apartment now, he would certainly notice that we really do not have much. I regularly make a selection of things because I am still amazed that I give away something or throw it away every time.

That is why, at the very thought of moving, I am happy not only because we will live in a larger apartment, but also in terms of the fact that I will be able to make the next selection of my belongings. And it will definitely be a sharp selection, because it is about time. The time we spend unpacking things.

Complete the unfinished business

It is known that not everything can be finished with a wave of the magic wand, but maybe you can manage to sort out the matters that you have put off for a long time? We managed to implement this plan. In December, we repaid our obligations, which have been sleeping for a long time. We finally succeeded and we can say that we are entering the new year with a blank card. Anyway, there will be a lot of changes. The first of them is moving, so we hope that the year 2017 will be kind to us.

New Year's resolutions

I have never made New Year's resolutions and I do not intend to. Does anyone implement them at all? After a month of inventing them, I forgot what I was supposed to do. For me they are pointless, but if they motivate you - great!

Just think of a provision whose implementation will be feasible. It is better to pursue smaller goals step by step than to come up with one whose implementation will be very difficult, and sometimes even impossible. In addition, smaller, achieved goals motivate more than one, large and unrealized.

We wish you a happy New Year and successful New Year's fun!
