As much as I don’t want to think about it, 2018 is nearly over and it’s time to start thinking about the new year and what that might hold. Now, although I am not someone to make massive New Years resolutions, I do think having some goals you want to achieve before the end of the year might be nice. Personally, I am not a big fan of winter so this makes the dull months seem much more bearable.
Go Somewhere New
Over the last couple of months, I have been keen to try new things and see new places. One of the things I really like to do is look on places such as Groupon for new things to try. This is great because they’re often at a discount and who doesn’t like a bargain? However, what it also does is give me a good idea of what is out there which I might not have heard of before! I have tried different meals out and also some great afternoon teas, which have been themed and really add to the enjoyment of the day.
Go On a Date
If you are single and ready to mingle, why not go on a date before Christmas? If you’re not out there already you can join something such as a Berkshire dating site and see about meeting some new people. Although I wouldn’t suggest rushing into anything there’s certainly no harm in setting up a profile and see what is out there. The good news is that there are loads of dating sites in Berkshire, or other options local to you, so finding a dating site that suits shouldn’t be too much of a struggle. For example, looking for over 50s dating? No problem, there’s sites out there for you too!
Give A Little Back
This time of year is all about giving and receiving presents, so why not do something nice for someone? I have seen lots of talk about hampers for people less well off than ourselves, or volunteering at places to serve up a festive meal. I am sure most of us can spare a few pound or a few hours, so why not aim for this to be something that you do before the year is over? I know I have Googled and there are a few local options to me, so it’s something I’ll be aiming to do before we say goodbye to 2018.
What I would say is that this time of year can feel pressure to re-live what we have done this year an often that means a reminder of what we haven’t done. Just remember that it is perfectly acceptable to go at your own pace and achieve things as and when is right for you. The end of the year, is simply the end of the year and not a symbol that you have failed because there’s something you wanted to do which you haven’t in the past 365 days.
