Depending on your personality, or maybe, depending on the season you’re walking through, the ~New Year~ can feel like this exciting realm of possibility & opportunity OR this sort of overwhelming burden. You’re seeing people post about their resolutions and ideas & goals and it is either firing you up as you do the same, or it’s making you kind of want to run away because you’re not quite sure where you’re heading in 2019 and it feels a little weighty.
Usually, my personality leans towards the ooh FIRE ME UP response! I want to set goals & make a plan & write things out and GO GO GO. But as I’ve entered into 2019, I’ve felt more of a quietness. Words like - simplify, rest, streamline, stillness - come to mind.
If you’ve been discouraged lately, maybe due to a sort of lack of direction or restless sense of purposelessness, can I encourage you? Because I’ve felt those things lately, too. You see everyone off to the races, you’re feeling left behind. BUT, what a sweet time to dig deeper. To search for clarity. To question some things. To refocus. Maybe it’s not time to DREAM & SET GOALS & GET PUMPED UP until you step back and reevaluate what you want this year to look like & where you want to go.
You’re not left behind. You’re okay. And every day is a fresh start - not just January 1st.
