New Year New Beginnings

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
– Oprah Winfrey


Interesting that for many of us we start every new year with a resolution – the chance to do something differently, to do it better. We ‘dare to dream’ that maybe this year we can achieve our goal.  But for many of us our resolution can be the first thing we ‘fail’ for the year. However, a ‘fail’ isn’t a bad thing – it shows we tried.  The key is to get up, dust yourself off and try again.

If it makes you feel any better, in America 40% of people make a new years resolution and 80% fail within the first 30 days.  Apparently only 8% follow through with their intention. The top resolutions are, unsurprisingly perhaps, to save more money, get healthier and lose weight. Perhaps a bit too broad to live up to Every Single Day?

An interesting concept we came across was to simply choose a word for the year. One that guides you, inspires you or just makes you smile. This somehow sounds more achievable.

And what a multitude of choice that gives us all – honest, authentic, brave, me-time (ok that’s two words but we like the sound of some ‘me-time’), family, travel, or the simplest of words (and one of the best) – Joy.

What brings joy for you?

We thought about it ourselves and for Rustic Hyde our 2019 word will remain Natural. With natural Australian skincare as our fundamental reason for being, we’re happy with all that being natural entails – honest, down to earth and caring.

And for you – we wish you a 2019 of JOY.
