The other day I was listening to an interview about millenials with Simon Sinek and it really got me thinking about how many weeks I must have spent glued to my phone, my laptop or the TV when there is so much more I could be doing.
It isn't really a new years resolution, but I'm now trying to come home after work and play the piano, swim or paint rather than lying back and scrolling through various news feeds on my phone, looking at other people's lives or wondering how many likes I might have gotten.
One of my Christmas gifts this year was a painting set, so I've been trying it out and am quite proud of my recent attempts:
I'm also exercising again and Phil and I have been trying out another one of our Christmas presents in the pool...
It's been great coming home and achieving something instead of looking at a screen. It probably helps that I'm doing dry January as well, so there's no temptation to go out and guzzle cocktails.
The next few months are going to be a but nuts - we have decided to stay in Singapore for at least one more year so Phil is on the look out for a new job and we are also starting to think about finding a new place to live.
I love this flat and will be really sad to leave, but if I stop for a minute and think about it - we've been so bloody lucky to have lived in this place at all!
