There's no new page, no clean sweep over an old chapter that we can leave behind at the stroke of midnight on the 31st of December. We bring everything with us into this new year. Everything. Old happiness and love, old hurts, regrets, judgements, opinions and pain.

Like anything in life there is a right and wrong way to do things. People are on different journeys this year, some are losing weight, some are getting fit, some are trying to get lean, some are looking for that six pack and some are trying to do it all.

Being a week in, it's probably fair to say that most people will have broken their well-intentioned resolutions. With this in mind, it might be a good time to consider that, for a change, instead of giving yourself a list of things you are not going to do this year, why not start 2015 with a list of things you are going to do.

After goading us into overindulgence all December long, every January, without fail, the Gods flip the script, beseeching that we filth-spattered selves we have been dragging about for the previous twelve months and replace them with a brand spanking new version of which we can be suitably smug.

Resolutions essentially come into the category of goal-setting. We often make them for things that we have been putting off, such as learning a language or quitting smoking.

We are just about one week into 2015 - a new cycle has begun, and is pregnant with potential. I enjoy the (perceived) clean slate that comes with each new year.

Start your year by creating just five minutes a day of pure silence, whether that's sitting in your car before you enter the house, in the shower each morning, or maybe in a meditative state propped up on your bed.

We may never get everything we want from life, we may not always get everyone to see our point of view, but if we can be the change we want to see in the world, if we take positive steps in our lives towards this, then others will be inspired to follow!
