I’ve never really liked the idea of New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t like the implication that January is the only time that we can make a change in our lives. And I don’t like the thought that I have to improve myself.
Am I a good person? I like to think so. Could I be better? Undoubtedly. Is it a problem if I stay just as I am? Absolutely not.
I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m mostly happy with who I am. I’ve got a job I enjoy, an amazing husband and two wonderful fur babies, and an ever growing group of friends that I game with.
Making so many gamer friends in 2018 has undoubtedly changed my life already. I’ve got people I can actually talk about games with, people who don’t think it’s weird that that’s how a thirty-something chooses to spend his weekends. And it’s left me more excited about games than I’ve been for a long time.
So why start a blog on 1 January, if I’m not keen on resolutions? Well, undoubtedly the New Year has left me wanting to find a new outlet to share my passion for gaming. But I’m determined not to be beholden to it. I’d like to try and write about every game I play this year, but if I don’t, I know that it won’t be the end of the world.
My non-resolution then is to try experimenting with blogging again, and see how I get on. That’s it. Just writing this means it’s already achieved, and hopefully that takes the pressure off so I can just see how it goes. If you’ve read this, then thanks for joining me on the journey, and let’s see where it takes us.
