With another year in the books
we prepare for what is ahead.
As we look back to what may have been
a good or bad year
we still try to place belief in our minds
that January 1st will be a fresh start.
We go with the flow of tradition
and for some place that dreaded
“resolution” into our plans
only to have one thing happen.
Our intentions are good,
as we prepare and honestly think
that this could be the year that we actually follow through.
I gave up on them years ago.
Too much pressure
with the whole “failure” thing.
I suppose I realized it
that one year that I decided
I would join a gym
knowing I hadn’t been to one in forever,
and with being so exhausted most days from work,
where in God’s name would I all of a sudden
find this energy.
I won’t even mention
the “eating healthier” part
because truth be told
giving up on my snacks
was never even an option,
so right there should have been my sign.
Don’t get me wrong,
I don’t think there is anything bad
about setting new goals
in the hopes of starting the year off on a good note,
however we need to be more real about it.
Please don’t tell the fitness clubs
or diet places I said anything,
or they’ll be very upset with me
that I steer you all away from getting
that membership you won’t use past the first week
(or for some of you a little more determined)
by the end of the month.
The way I see it,
if you want to make any changes
in your life
to better yourself,
why can’t it be today,
or next Monday
or 2 weeks from Sunday?
Whatever it is you choose
to better your year,
a fresh start is a fresh start,
on whatever day
YOU are ready.
The gyms, diet places or health stores
won’t close up shop.
They will still be there to sell you a membership
or a phenomenal plan after January 1st
and best of all…
there’s a pretty good chance
they’ll be more room to move about
in a few weeks anyway!
Trust Me 😉
Wishing you all
your best year EVER!
~Happy New Year and God Bless~
