New Year – New You?

January 1, 2014

I was always gonnna say this, I was bound to draw your attention to it, I was destined to be red-faced at pointing you in the direction of this great big foot-in-the-mouth and I have been waiting with baited breath so I could post this, just for you, at this time of year:

On New Year’s Day 2013, after a fantastic night on the tiles in Manchester with my best mate, I told you how positive, optimistic and entrepreneurial I was feeling.

Famous. Last. Words.


Oh, hang on a minute, did I just say ‘Life Changing’? I think I might have.

Here’s the thing people – life never leads you where you expected it to. No amount of positive thinking/affirmations can ‘save’ you from yourself. What I mean by this is this – sometimes we have to hit rock rock rock bottom in order to discover something that we have been running from our entire lives. Sometimes we must dare to be red-faced with embarrassment because we got something (like, er, my entire philosophy on life) wrong.

Sometimes, sometimes, just sometimes – we will be forced to surrender.

So take a look at my New Year’s Day post for 2013 and have a giggle to yourself – I didn’t know it at the time but I was talking a load of rubbish. Looking back – deep, deep down, I did know what was really in store for me, I just didn’t dare look into the heart of the matter (or indeed, what mattered, truly, truly mattered).

Now…. let’s look at this present moment:

What does 2014 hold in store for me?

What does 2014 hold in store for you?

What do we want it to have in store for us?

I have no idea.

Thank fuck for that.

Much Love,

Me xx

  1. So what is your answer to your last question, Matt? Much love, new joy, and good health to you in 2014.
