Happy New Year!


Whoops, I'm about four days too late, sorry about that, I've been a little busy with coursework and stuff; planning things for the new year. Speaking of which, Happy New Year!! I hope you had a wonderful New Years, I know I did.  I originally planned on spending the evening alone watching, Netflix and drinking cider, but my friend came over, and we ordered Indian food, made lists of all the things we are going to do this year, and then watched Netflix with cider. 

I also wrote, I wrote a lot. My friend fell asleep little after 2am, and I was itching to write something, my head was on fire with thousands of thoughts, I couldn't sleep. There was nothing I wanted more than to feel a pen between my fingers, and hear the sound of it scratching against the pages of my notebook. It's a soul healing activity, letting whatever is in your head flow through you and onto a page. Seeing your thoughts, the notions that float around your head, in front of you, rather than locked away, is therapeutic It's almost as if you are leaving a part of you on those pages, you are extending yourself beyond your own body. It's a wonderful feeling, being able to word vomit, and just empty your head, even for a few moments. 

I urge you all to try it, writing without purpose; writing just because. I recently got back into doing that towards the end of last year, and the only way I can explain it, is soul restoring. I think it's one of those things that you don't really get, until you've experienced it. It's a great feeling. 

I wrote about how in 2015 I was going to do manifest magic, how I was going to make a point of doing everything on my list of things I want to this year. I thought about 'changing' but can anyone really change? We can make changes, but we can't change into different people. And even if we want to change ourselves why should we wait till the new year? We should be able to change whenever we want to, not because of social conformity to want to edit ourselves on January 1st. 

Maybe I'll type up my ramblings at some point, maybe I won't, but until then I ask you to think about your New Years resolutions, don't change yourself because of society and other people, do it for you. Resolutions don't have to be about changing, they can be about doing. Do something you want to do this year, and have fun whilst doing it!
