I don’t actually do New Year Resolutions, mostly because I soon forget what they were and so end up not keeping them. Despite that I do usually have ideas about how I see the new year progressing, think about things that I might like to do or how I might do things differently but nothing gets set in stone, so to speak.

Yesterday, 12th Night, I went for a bike ride, just an amble around the local lanes, in the morning. In the afternoon I packed away all the Christmas decorations (apart from the one I missed!) and they are all back up in the loft (apart from the one I missed!) so having had a busy day yesterday I am just coasting along in neutral today, continuing to tidy up and get the house back in order.

However, I found myself getting a bit stressed because I usually write a post here on Mondays and I have not been able to think of anything worth writing about, I couldn’t even come up with a ‘Small Stone’ instead, brain is just not working.

So then I found myself a resolution for the coming year – I am not going to write a post on my blog simply for the sake of writing a post, if I have nothing to say then I won’t say anything. I fully expect to keep up my usual regime of posts but am not going to stress myself out if I miss the odd one now and then because I can’t think of anything to write or am too busy with other things. I generally blog on Mondays, with ‘Small Stones’ on Wednesdays and Fridays, but from now on I might just miss the odd one now and then; no stress!

    That’s how I’ve begun to look at prompts. Well I have been actually – not the need to do all, just the ones I like. Much less stress that way. 🙂

    Or the time when to post. I had been pretty regular about the mornings, but now if I make my posts sometime within the day – that’s good enough too.

    I want to make time to do other things too, like puzzles and reading. Hopefully though I will continue to find most of the puzzles will have all their pieces …not like this prompted post Boxed Bewilderment

    Cheers to you!
