It's that time of year again, when I think about all those things I'd like to change in my life. I know what's wrong and what's bugging me. The hard part in knowing what to do about them.

I need to get back to my former fitness. I love getting out and about and doing energetic things, but I am still quite overweight, and if anything it is getting worse, year on year. So, I think once again, I shall commit to get fit and try to shift some of excess weight.

I think the weight (gain) is to do with the excessive stress I am under at work. I'm not at all happy where I am, so this is my second resolution - to do something about my work situation. I don't know what yet, but something has to be done. It may be that I will find a new job, or it may be that I will finally adjust to coping with the enormous work load, or it may be that I will stop caring that the management only criticises and rarely praises and just stop listening to them. Either way, something has to change.

Thirdly, I want to write. I want somebody to pay me to write the stuff I want to write about. This is probably a tall order, but it is not impossible. My travel blogs are being published in the Mensa Visa Magazine this spring. My novel is creeping towards completion. What do I resolve to do about it? Well, I think I will finish my novel and get an agent this year. I will continue to write up my travels and I will take a more active part in promoting my writing. Instead of just letting the opportunities come to me, I will actively go out and create some.

So, these are my plans for the new year. May it be a good one for us all.
