At this time of year, people all over the world are making New Year resolutions, many of which will never be kept beyond the first week in January.
Things like eating healthy or cutting down on the alcohol or getting more exercise are always high on the list of promises we make to ourselves as the clock ticks closer to midnight on 31st December every year.
Why is it that we choose this time of year to decide to make changes?
Why not the middle of April or the last day of September?
When was the last time you decided to do something for you? Something that wasn't planned, just done on the spur of the moment.
Something that bought joy to you; lifted your spirits; made you feel happy?
Most of us live such hum drum lives that we often forget about the little things that can make us smile.
The smell of freshly baked bread; a few flowers picked from the garden; listening to the birds singing; watching the stars in the night sky.
When was the last time you did something that made you smile?
Make time in your life on a regular basis for something that brings you joy and happiness.
