New year’s resolutions

Ah. December.
The jolliest time of the year.
But also to think how totally crappy the past 11 months were and how the next going to be completely awesome.

Boys & girls, time to make a new year’s resolution list!

Although I don’t look back at 2017 as a very happy year, I did succeed in completing my new year’s resolution.

Last year around this time I set my goal to be able to drive a car independently and feel comfortable and safe.
Although having a license, I didn’t drive for 2.5 years.

After half a year of anxiety behind the wheel, I suddenly got the hang of it.
I even started looking for my own car.
This was fun, until I saw the prices!

The few times I had to go somewhere for work, my manager would complain why I drove 10km that what google maps showed and therefore spending company money.
Like it is ever my intention to take the wrong exit (!)

Time for a new job.
After a long, frustrating searching I finally was accepted for my current job.
Not only the job has been pleasant so far, I actually got the benefit of a company car.

Who would have thought that a simple new year’s resolution has led to a step further into a better future.

Since this method has proved successful, I will try the same for next year.

After spending two holidays driving in Canada, we have only seen the Moose sign.

My aim is to see the moose in real life.

This might seem simple, but really, we have been dreaming a bit on how at peace we would feel in a country with so much beautiful nature.

To be continued 😉

If you can pick on new year’s resolution for 2018, what would it be?

  1. So first of all, the best places to see moose is in the northern US. Second, you accomplished a LOT this year so my congrats go out to you.
    New Years resolution…. to keep doing what I’m doing and try to make some money out of doing it! I’m barely making it now because I don’t charge much and I am way too nice about payments.

    1. Then that’s where we will go. I am really getting impatient with moose and not showing himself, haha.

      Thank you Julie, I feel like I have been able to accomplish quite some this year.
      As for you, your story of setting up your own business remains my motivation for trying that myself one day!

    1. There are a lot of reckless drivers! I can imagine it freaks you out.
      The first I did wrong was not position my chair and steering wheel correctly, so I remained very tensed in the car.
      Once I found a more relaxed position, my body was more relaxed too.
      Looking in your mirrors is important too.
      Also, planning your next move; do you want to stay in the left or right lane.
      Good luck with it! 🙂


  2. Too early for New Year s resolution…..I usually think about them stuffed and lazy at the beginning of the new year….also I never stick with them🙄May be this it should be the one for 2018:think at a new year resolution and stick with it😉

  3. Wow! Your resolutions for this past year were similar to mine. I also have driving anxiety but think I got to work on that a lot more in 2017. I’m still looking for a job, and I hear ya on the whole frustrating, long aspect of it… Congrats to you, though!
    I wrote a bit about new year’s resolutions on my blog (gallantlygal.com) if you want to check out the tips. I think the main one I’m going to focus on for 2018 is telling myself, “I love you so much,” every morning, because I’m way too hard on myself….
    Here’s to a great 2018 for everyone!

    1. I read your post and it pretty much summarizes the type of people and their resolutions.
      People always seem to be more “ready” for changes at the start of new year. But usually January is a pretty depressing month for most people, so I am not sure if it works for everyone at that exact time 😉


      1. It is depressing if you let it be that way. there may be problems etc but we should focus on positive, and we know that change e. g. of habits is possible. Thank u for the comment! 🙂 x


  4. Great post. I’ve not made any resolutions for more years than I care to remember, but from this point on I will make an exception: to reduce the amount of plastic I buy/use and to be more ‘earth conscious.’
