New Year's resolutions

2012 wasn't the most brilliant of years for me.  I struggled a fair bit with depression, which affected my reading and blogging abilities for most of the year.  But what's great about this time of year is that I feel like I can have a fresh start in a new year. And I'm determined that 2013 will be very different. 

Hopefully my simplified goals below will give a good indication of where things are headed in my life - I'm going for less pressure, more enjoyment.  If you make resolutions for this upcoming year, I wish you all the best of luck. 

Personal goals

*Be kind to myself

*Face my fears

*Appreciate the little things

*Strive for what makes me happy

Blogging goals

*No pressure. Remember that blogging is meant to be a fun hobby

*Organise 2 themed weeks throughout the year

*Support British authors

Reading goals

*Complete British Books Challenge 2013

*Clear my TBR pile so that only 30 or so books remain

*Reread old favourites
