I don’t do New Year’s resolutions…

I never have. Well, none that I can remember anyway.

I recently read that New Year’s Resolutions have a habit of being abandoned after about a week. Assuming I fall into the average and knowing how guilty I feel after not doing something I’ve said I’m going to do when I haven’t given myself a timeframe, the thought of how guilty I will feel when I’ve actually made a promise to  to change my habits completely from a particular point (and haven’t), just isn’t worth it.

However, having said that….I have just given myself a goal. A couple of days ago I walked the Reids Tramline circuit at Powelltown. This is a walk, although not very long (just over 6 kilometers), that I’ve been meaning to do for 20 odd years. It is also in a book of bush walks  that sees the light of day every 6 months or so, when a nice walking day is coming up and I’ve got nothing else planned. I can now tick that walk off. A couple of weeks ago I also ticked off the Domino Trail near Trentham. The book has 41 walks. I have done 20 of them. I would like to complete all the walks in the book before I leave the state. Maybe I have just made my first New Year’s resolution. After all, they all have to be done in the New Year.

  1. A relaxing way to spend a day. We walk trails often, particularly in school holidays when I’m reminded why some species eat their young.
