Day one – I love the first day of everything. First day of school, first day of the week (I’m talking Sunday, not Monday) and today, first day of a Brand New YEAR!
The New Year is probably the single most joy-filled 72-96 hours, all over the world — at the same time. How great is that? How great is it to know that you can write a brand new chapter to your life starting today?
I usually spend the first week of the New Year greeting every familiar face with best wishes to a new start, which is an amazing return on investment. The calendar turning for me is — the universe allowing us the perfect starting point and measuring stick for realignment and rejuvenation.
It’s like a natural U-turn. If you’re going the wrong way, you can discover the right direction just in time to – turn around. Right the ship. Set the course. Goal setting with a manageable and perfectly calculated timeframe to adjust, review, push harder, listen closer and strive smarter to meet & achieve those goals.
12 months to add or subtract, multiply or divide lessons of life.
You can set Pay it Forward type goals like – saying good morning to everyone or smiling with warmth. Life changing goals like — planning a trip filled with cultural discovery and growth — Financial goals that encourage discipline and belief — Nutritional goals that inspire and reform you — Spiritual goals that enhance and refill you –- Creative goals that refine & challenge you — this is what I love about being blessed to live and start New again.
A New Year is the celebration of allowing ourselves to begin again. The ball dropping is the back door closing and front door opening at the same time. Goodbye – but HELLO!
Hello with open arms to a new year of optimism and growth. 2013! Arriving just in time.
