TWO weeks into the new year and already I’ve gotten off to a very bad start to 2016.

Like many, I’m not one for making new year’s resolutions – mainly because after a week I forget about ever making them, and if you can’t make a promise to change during the rest of the year then why would the first of January be any different?

But it’s the thought that come the first of January the slate is wiped clean and there is a fresh and unknown horizon waiting for each of us.

I spent the majority of 2015 in a negative mindset. It was a big year, in that I had final exams but the pressure was building with all the studying. I wanted 2015 to be full of positivity, but unfortunately I let people’s comments and actions get in the way of my happiness.

There are no new year resolutions for 2016, but it’s going to very different from last year.

I want my year to be full of positivity. There will be no more negativity. The negativity has stayed in the past with 2015.

2016 is going to involve more travelling, more writing and generally going with the flow and not worrying about what people think.

January is a just a new month, but it’s a new month that has given me so much motivation and inspiration to make this year the best one yet.

About Claire Thomas

Originally from Kent, I moved to Spain with my parents when I was 10 years old. I was thrown into the deep end when I was put into the Spanish education system with no grasp of the language.I'm now 22 and my friends all call me an “Española”. Since passing my Bachillerato (English Baccalaureate) I have worked in shops and bars and I have also taught Spanish to ex-pats. I have a keen interest in writing as well as travelling and one day I hope to become a writer.
