So many people start the new years with a new years resolution. ‘I want to be thinner.’, ‘I want a new job’, or whatever.
Personally? I find New Years Resolutions silly. Why wait? What’s the use in saying ‘In 2013, I’ma be [insert wish here]’ when you could just go and do it?
I make a note not to make Resolutions, purely based on the following fact (and excuse the whimsical crap that I’m about to spew on to my page in an effort to sound more sophisticated and philosophical than I actually am. In truth, I’m sitting here eating Frosties out of the box and listening to Bob Marley on repeat):
Life is not made to be planned.
I think of all the things I did in 2012, all of which I hadn’t planned to do, and how amazing they were.
I didn’t plan to go and work at a festival.
I didn’t plan on white water rafting in the Alps in July.
I didn’t plan on attending a fancy soiree in Central London with famous faces for my 19th birthday.
I didn’t plan on meeting all the wonderful people I met.
I didn’t plan on getting published on the RSC website
and I most certainly didn’t plan on meeting ‘someone’.
My point is that, for me, the best things are those that can’t be planned. Why say you’re going to do something and risk being let down by not being able to do it. Go with the flow, take things as they come and enjoy yourself.
To start my chronicle of 2013, here’s a few picture from KentSnow’s Winter Tour 2013 (4th Jan-12th Jan). Months of hard work boiled down to this epic/messy/unforgettable (although, ironically, some nights I remember very little) week in Les Arcs.
