2019 is finally here and I've been wondering just how many 'fellow travelers' of mine have been busy making lists of all the things they won't do in the coming year.
Dissapointment and failure or a combination of both can deliver a lethal dose to the depressive. That's one of the reasons I personally stopped creating new year 'To Do' lists a long time ago. For when one or more of the projects failed to lift off, I became debilitated, and on one occasion close to suicide.
Lists are not for me, but serious and focused note taking are, so I write down ideas, thoughts without commitment, and if some of them happen, that's OK, the ones that don't are recycled and surface later.
Over the new year period, my wife and I spent a relaxing 48 hours in Ely, Cambridgeshire. It was both relaxing and glorious, doing as we pleased with no structured plans for anything.
So no more lists, half backed ideas or promises. Just 'Do It' and enjoy.
