Happy New Year! 05.01.2012



This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.


Happy New Year!;

Wow already five days into the new year!!! Time is flying! Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have all had a lovely Holiday season and that the year ahead will be full of health, happiness and crafty creativeness!

I always enjoy the start of a New Year! I love how it gives everybody new incentives. I see so many people around me become more motivated and a little more positive that I just can't help jump on the 'New Year, New me' band wagon!

As usual, as the end of the year approached, I had a little conversation with myself. A little evaluation of how things were going and thoughts about what I want to achieve during the upcoming year. Its not like I've set myself New Years resolutions as I tend to break them a little to soon and feel disheartened . They are more like general things that I want to focus a little more on. Things to work on, but with no set goal.

This way I can not get disappointed if I do not reach the goal. I'm thinking of it as an unlimited goal. A year of unlimited achievements.
Sounds pretty positive! :-)
So here's my list:


It's not the biggest list in the world, which is good. I can really focus on each of the points.
I've already made my steps at working on my New Years List.
Like many others, I made a New Years trip to the gym. I got myself a years membership and I'm feeling really motivated and so far I'm enjoying my workout time. Its a nice time for me to spend alone and have just my thoughts for company. I love running on the treadmill listening to my favourite music to keep me motivated.


I'm also getting back into the habit of practicing my singing when I'm not on stage. We have a couple of music rooms at the theatre that are not used during the show, so I'm making good use of them.


As for the other things on my list they are definite works in progress. But I am taking small steps in the right direction!

Dennis and I are also going to be making some changes to the blog in the next few weeks, so things may start to look a little different. We are thinking of changing the layout a little and the concept behind us sharing blog posts. So watch this space!

I hope that everybody's New Year is off to a good start? Are you making any resolutions or lists like I have? Or maybe you have some new projects for the New Year? Dennis and I have a couple of projects up our sleeves! Projects that we will no doubt share with you very soon!
