290. Carrying on

When I started this project my aim was to start and end it on the 1st January, a complete year of something new every day.

For a couple of months that went to plan. Work was quite quiet and I had time outside of it to do all the relevant admin (it takes a long time to source, contact and plan all the activities) to make it all happen.

Then suddenly I changed jobs and it became a bit more tricky because I was busier. But I still had my hands on the reins and the wheels hadn't fallen off yet so I powered through.

Then in October I joined a business incubator to build my own company, something I don't think I would have had the courage to do had this list not changed my way of thinking. But I noticed that the evening and weekend activities I was trying to cram in were becoming the monkey on my back and that was never how it was supposed to be.

I made the decision, as I had earlier in the year, to down tools on this blog for a little while to let myself focus on the new job and rest outside of the office.

And I have to say even though it was tough at the time I know I made the right choice. I initially felt like I had failed the task I set but now I get to look forward to some fun things this year too. I still have 75 glorious days available to fill with newness!

Tonight I celebrated probably the most eye-opening year of my life so far with a couple of friends. One who really understands the challenges of having a condition and has had many adventures with me this year. And the other who I'm building my business future with. It seemed a pretty apt guestlist.

Happy New Year everyone!
