January is a notoriously ‘sad’ month and we could all use some more joy in our lives. We’re experiencing the comedown after Christmas and New Year. Money tends to be tighter this month, especially in my case as it’s my first month without pay in my search for a new job.
Can you be happy with your life and still feel like a failure? This is completely how I’m feeling at the moment, and have been since the turn of the New Year. The start of a new year often makes us look at where we are and where we’d like to be. If you read my goals for 2017, you’ll know that I haven’t made any specific resolutions this year. I have committed myself to making sure I grow as a person however.
This year, aged 24 and a half I spent my very first Christmas away from home.
I know that many people have spent Christmas in various different places, split between different branches of family. For some it may be the norm, for many nothing out of the ordinary. Myself, well I’ve never had a Christmas morning without my parents and my sister, so it was pretty weird.
