Each New Years many people take on the whole "new year, new me" thing, setting crazy resolutions that set them up to fail. Waiting around for the new year to make changes to your lifestyle is like not changing your eating habits because its Wednesday and you want to start Monday fresh.
So this year I kept it simple for myself, I decided on a theme word for what I wanted 2018 to be; adventure. And sat myself down to a pile of books to enjoyer my break. I wanted these books to be enjoyable, to make me laugh, while also challenging my thinking. Each one helping me jump into 2018 with a realistic plan rather than feeling like I had jumped in with two feet screaming "Look Mum, no hands!".
