How to reboot your resolutions

My attempt at a Dry January and how to reboot your resolutions

Who decided that January was a good month to go sans alcohol?

Oh…I did!

Just like 99.9% of the population, I decided January was a good a time as any to challenge myself to a change  – so I decided to go dry.

So far, minus one wobble, I have stuck to it.  The wobble was last Thursday evening which happened to coincide with the beginning of a certain cycle (as I suspect 99% of my readers are woman, I feel safe in the knowledge I can share that with you).  I had a very long day teaching and at 10:00 at night, I made the decision that close enough was good enough in respect to my challenge and I poured myself a glass of Sirah.

I didn’t knock myself, or make myself feel bad for not being 100% on mission…I just promised to start again the next day…

….and I did.

So if you made a promise to do something different this January but are knocking yourself for not keeping to your promise, just remember thats sometimes…

..close enough is good enough…

and maybe start again?
