The last day of blog posting of the year? This is blog post 327 and the last for the New Year. How am I going to celebrate? Every year is almost the same, the New Years Countdown and Fireworks.
New Years Countdown in Germany
This is my first New Years in Germany and everything seems to be out and about here trying to buy supplies (especially fireworks) before tomorrow when all the shops will be closed. In Germany, all stores and grocery stores are closed on holidays and Sundays.
This year I will likely miss my favorite New York New Years Countdown due to the six hour time difference. I have no idea what the New Years count down in Germany is, something in Berlin? In any case, there will be plenty of champagne and good ol’ German Beer (best in the world?)
A time to reflect
This is a great time to reflect over the past year and figure out what we can improve on for next year. A few questions I ask myself are: What did I do wrong last year that I can fix this year? What goals do I have this year and how can I achieve them? I know plenty of people set new goals for the new year, whether it is losing weight, reading a book, or making more money. But, how many people actually stick with this goal after the first few weeks of the New Year? This year should be the year that you chart out your goals. Remind yourself of your goals everyday and visualize yourself achieving them. If weight loss is a goal, it helps to keep a picture of a skinnier attractive person you’d like to be come on your mirror. This way you are reminded everyday of your goal. If it’s money your after, why not glue a few hundred dollars bills on your mirror? Visualize your goals and you are more likely to achieve them.
For everyone, have a safe and great New Years Eve!
