Let the New Year Roll In

Soul logo It never fails….. Right after Christmas, we start making a list of things that we want to change in our lives when January 1st rolls in. My question and my amazement comes from not understanding WHY we need to wait to begin on January 1st? Was October 14th not a good day? November 10th was not quite right? The hope we have is that on January 1st our motivation will magically kick in and it will transform our lives and habits; we will achieve that big goal; make that famous and useless list; and follow our new routine. Sarcastically speaking (in this case typing) I am including myself on all of that. However, that is not the worse part….. The worst part is when we start reviewing the year that is about to end…. Oh my! Then, in that exact moment, it hits us – The year was filled with adventures, challenges, achievements, deceptions, happiness, some regrets, lots of joy, and all the emotions and events that happens in daily life. It is so awesome to think about this past year and gracefully turn the page as there is no deleting. There are only two (2) words that we will be able to use when looking back: THANKS & SORRY. But there is no changing. We all want to do better, be better and feel better. This is called willpower, drive, motivation and the desire to accomplish, achieve and succeed. Invite the New Year to roll in, but let’s not raise our expectations to an unachievable height, it is gratitude that will change our feelings about the good things that happens in our lives. It is also gratitude that will make you think about the “not so good things” and understand that they could have been a lot worse. Let 2015 roll in; it is a blank canvas, an unwritten book, an invitation, an opportunity, a new chance and above all – It is filled with hope! So why wait till January 1st? Be happy NOW, change your habits NOW, start that project NOW. January 1st is only a day on the calendar…Happy New Year today! XOXO, Jules
