So it seems we are finally getting back into the way of life now that the festivities are finally over. It does seem hard to adjust straight away. Afterall, we can’t be expected to simply change our way of life in an instant. It takes time. We don’t necessarily agree with going cold turkey - it’s been proven a number of times that it just isn’t effective. Dramatically cutting something out of your life that has been in it for sometime is an uphill battle. No, we’re not still talking about the wild ways of Christmas. Instead, we are talking about resolutions and how can help make ourselves better people.
Whilst first impressions do count towards a lot, they're certainly nothing to lose your head over. If you're meeting with someone for the first time, and it perhaps doesn't go exactly according to plan, there is no need to panic. For if they are going to be a permanent fixture in your life, you will certainly have ample opportunity to make it up to them. If not, and you are forever etched in their memory as the worst first impression alive, it really doesn't matter. As Oscar Wilde very shrewdly observed, 'The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about'. And this is very true. You want to make an impact on people's lives, we hope for the better. If not, and you might need to think about your life’s work. Either way, it's important to us that people have a good impression of us, but we're not bothered about losing sleep if they don't perceive us to be perfect. We will be the first person to put our hands up and say it, but we wouldn't change it for the world.
