Another Year Older

As I turn another year older, I reflect on what I have achieved and the changes in my life this past year. Thirty-four was a year when I moved into my own flat and got promoted, which led me to move to a different centre with in GLL. Thirty-four was also a year where I learnt how to perform the Olympic lifts correctly and made some important decisions on how I want my life to be. Now I am Thirty-five it is time to put those decisions into action. I have noticed that there are lots of people who complain about how bad their life is yet do nothing to make their lives better. Lots of people seem to have big plans for what they want to do with their lives yet fail to take any of the required steps to turn their plans into reality. It is understandable that people are scared to take the first steps required to turn their plans into reality. The grander the plan the greater the risk of failure. It is easier to worry about everything that could go wrong instead of focussing on what could work out. I am guilty of this. Some of the biggest changes I have made in my life have failed to turn out how I had hoped. Since turning twenty-one I have moved relocated four times in order to build a better life for myself. My last relocation brought me back to Swindon on one week’s notice. 2017 was a rough year however 2018 and 2019 have been much better. There are still some areas of my life where I spend more time worrying about what could go wrong, instead of focussing on how good it will be if things work out the way I hope they will. This is something I know I need to work on. Breaking a habit takes time, however I will give myself till the end of 2019 to break this one.
