Happy New Year!!! We completed 2018 and now beginning 2019! Every time a new year comes, you see all kind of advertisements. “New Year, New You“, “Out with the old, in with the new“, “New you, new beginning” or “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
Whatever the saying may be, does it have to be January 1st in order for us to start over? I always wondered why a certain date determined a new beginning . If I mess up, I do not want to have to wait until January 1st to start over. Then there is the pressure to come up with some type of resolution. Well if you are not serious about the resolution, by Feb 13th you have already stopped whatever you said you were going to do.
I told myself this year I am not relying on a date nor a resolution to have a good year. I will be giving myself grace and just live intentionally. Of course I will have goals I will work towards, but this time I will have some meaning behind them. A reason why I get up everyday. That thing I shoot for and want to accomplish in a timely manner. I waste enough time on social media and do not need to waste anymore time.
I encourage you to do 2019 differently by not following traditional new year mojo. Create your own reason for coming into this new year. Know your “why” to which you get up each morning. Be the best version of you just by competing with yourself. And finally, love your life not theirs!
