If you set a goal for 2018, and you’ve already broken it within the first week p l e a s e don’t trash that goal. I already see the “Welp! I can always try for 2019!” attitude spreading around like a wildfire and it’s just sad. Unfortunately, we aren’t guaranteed “next year” and too often we take the year we are given for granted. Who said that a new year can only begin on January 1st? The year is 365 days long… it’s a cycle. Once those 365 days are up, it’s a new year. Who said you can’t pick one of those days to start your own 365 day cycle?
Now, why am I saying this?
Partially, *cough* mostly *cough* because I need to hear it for myself. I think it’s easy to get defeated when you are focused on tackling 365 days as a whole rather than tackling one day at a time. I get so excited to see the end result of having accomplished my goals that I can skim over the day-to-day effort it takes to accomplish the goals. I guess I need a reminder that 365 days= 1 year; rather than believing January 1st-December 31st=1 year.
Within my first week there were a few conflicts of schedule but luckily I was able to catch up on the things I wanted to have done within the week earlier today so, now that I am writing this post, I am back on track!
So, without further adieu, let’s get to those goals!
