Can you believe we are coming to the end of the first month of 2019? There is something special about new beginnings. It seems that everyone is so excited to “reset” in January, which can breathe enthusiasm into our own goals and resolutions. Our social media feeds and email boxes are filled with great ways to focus on decluttering or eating right or new exercise programs. It is all great but can become a little overwhelming and if you have not perfected that vegan diet or konmari’d your dressers to the max, you may feel a little down or discouraged.
Well I am here to ask you, what makes January so special? Nothing really. So if you feel that you got off to a slow start or no start at all, GIVE YOURSELF SOME GRACE.
Tomorrow is a new day! It is a new chance to move in the direction of your dreams, goals, vision and purpose. Do not discount the little by little progress that can be made through the improvement of your daily habits.
Are crushing your goals?! YAY! It is time to take a moment to celebrate! Maybe you feel discouraged or disappointed with your progress.
PROGRESS IS PROGRESS. It is time to celebrate!
Little by little you are stepping towards your goals and for that you should CELEBRATE. Progress does not have to be perfect to be celebrated. Little by little in the right direction will make all the difference in one year.
So celebrate the desire to grow. Celebrate slow starts. Celebrate progress.
