This isn’t a self-help blog. This is a help-self blog!
Let’s say that 2011 hasn’t exactly been a stellar year. In saying that it hasn’t been a total write off. My career has progressed sufficiently and many new opportunities have come my way. However, all these great things have been overshadowed by not-so great things. Failed relationships, conflict and questionable (stupid!) decisions have definitely thrown a spanner in the works. The New Year is definitely looking more enticing. Yet hoping that a new year will erase all that has happened is just fanciful.
In situations like these you consult friends and family. They provide advice in what they deem to be your best interests. The insights given were invaluable, but it’s all the same stuff. Try new things, read, travel, move furniture around, burn some incense. Some of this advice was worthy (Travel!), some others, not so much. And that’s the issue, I and many other people need something different.
