Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window.

I had a wonderful Christmas day.   And am having a relaxing morning.  Whilst lying in bed I started thinking about my new years resolutions and activities I would like to start next year.  Although I am not sure how I will fit them all in. Or if anything will actually pan out as planned.  

So seeing as I want to start going to singing sessions on Tuesday mornings, get to the gym around 3 times a week, do yoga, improve my Spanish, Yin Style Bagua, crafting and study!  I think it's all a bit too much.  And that's even without volunteering in a homeless kitchen once a month.   

I think I'll leave learning more Spanish for when my course has finished and go to singing once or twice a month.  But of course the main thing is that I don't get disappointed because I haven't reached my expectations.  Don't get me wrong, I think that having goals is good.  But trying to stick to a multitude of activities that are meant to be for fun and getting angry when my expectations aren't met is detrimental as it is impossible to tell what obstacles I will come across on a day to day basis.  

Studying and getting my assignments in on time should be my second priority as I need to get distinctions to get into Uni.  But first I would like to put my practise of yoga and meditation along with going to the gym and eating healthy.  Then socialising, bagua, singing and crafting can fit in when I have the time.
