Planning for Christmas and New Year 2019

Just think you could start 2019 with a brand new hobby or interest to look forward to. It could be something you could do and share with your children when you see them, or something that will give you the opportunity to meet new friends, or even a new partner!!

Over the years I have tried many things, Astronomy, Photography, Painting both water colour and oil, walking, music the lists goes on and on. Some of them I loved and met many new friends, some of them where just not for me, but if you don’t try you will never know.

Finding new friends isn’t always easy and comfortable. Sometimes, as much as you want to have friendships, you’d just rather curl up with a book than attend some social gathering or meet-up with a group of strangers.

Here are a few suggestions on ways to meet new people and develop friendships:

  • Get involved in a sport or activity club.
  • Join a book club.
  • Join a MeetUp.
  • Walk your dog.
  • Find a business association
  • Go to a cultural event.
  • Join the gym.
  • Take a dance class.
  • Find a church or religious community.
  • Hang out at a jazz or music club.
  • Take an art class (or any class).
  • Join the board of a charity.
  • Professional Events
  • Seminars
  • Self-Improvement Clubs
  • Hypnosis Groups
  • Holistic Healing Groups
  • Public Speaking Clubs
  • Singles Clubs and Events
  • Language-Driven Events and Groups
  • Wine Tasting groups

The more you put yourself in social settings, the better the odds are that you’ll meet interesting, fun new people who will improve your life, even if they don’t ultimately become your best friends.

I am pleased to say I fulfilled all my ambitions for this year which included, scuba diving in Thailand, my first flying lesson, made several new friends, joined a tennis club along with many more enjoyable unplanned activities.

Make you life so interesting so when your children return you have many new hobbies and interests you may be able to share with them.

Get out there!!!Word Art 19

Rule no 10. Christmas – Hobbies

I know it sounds crazy only a week before Christmas, but what better time to decide to take up a new interest or hobby. Whenever anyone asks you “what would you like for Christmas” you could ask for things related to you new hobby. If you don’t feel you can ask, you can always wait until the New Year Sales and purchase all your goodies at a reduced price.

Just think you could start 2018 with a brand new hobby or interest to look forward to. It could be something you could do and share with your children when you see them, or something that will give you the opportunity to meet new friends, or even a new partner!!

The camera can really be your friend when travelling alone, you don’t feel conspicuous when behind the lens of a camera.

Astronomy is an alternative way to spend evenings outside with groups of people of all ages, a good one if you don’t like bars and clubs, and more often than not its a great deal more interesting than watching TV, and trawling the internet.

Both oil painting and water colours are things you can do both inside and out, away from home or on holiday. Painting is a great way to completely distract your mind from all those negative thoughts.

Think about it, how proud would your children be, how much enjoyment you would have sharing and teaching your children. You never know you could encouraging the next David Bailey, Picasso or Brian Edward Cox OBE
