The compulsion to make New Year resolutions is fascinating. I decided to give myself a better chance of success and not start until today – when in my mind everything returns to normal… whatever “normal” is!
The decorations have been put away for another year. The last guest left with me for the train to London this morning. It’s back to work – so that provides an obvious chance to embed a new routine. Doesn't it...?!
But surely each new day provides that opportunity, not just the first day of the year...
Why should my resolve be greater today?
Why should I succeed this time?
I don’t know the answers to those questions but I shall try and resist the temptation to turn this into a version of Bridget Jones’ diary!
But temptation is what it’s all about and I’ve more often than not found that I can identify all too well with Oscar Wilde who wrote “I can resist anything except temptation”….
