I’m Pressing Pause on the New Year
Not so fast 2019. I can appreciate the fact that you’re here, but I must say I wasn’t ready. I was having a jolly old time in 2018 and then you snuck up on me.
Last week is a bit of a blur. Usually New Years is one of my favorite holidays. I love making new goals and starting anew. But these last two years I’ve been a little off. Last year because I was in a first trimester haze. And this year because we just made a big move, with two kids and a baby. A move we were extremely blessed to make. And I’m SO thankful for.
The good news is I know from experience that it’s ok if you aren’t ready to jump in with a new gym membership and resolutions to check in every day. Or if you don’t hit the ground running on 1/1/19. Last year it took me a few months to feel up to making goals but once I finally did I was ready to roll.
I don’t think it’ll take months for me to feel ready to get going. I actually am hoping I’ll be ready by my birthday next week, or the end of the month at the latest.
I stopped making resolutions years ago, but I always make new year goals. Right now my goal is to set my goals next month.
Until then I’m trying to unpack the last dozen or so boxes and get set up in this new home of ours. I’m still basking in gratitude and relishing in some lingering holiday cheer. Still glowing in the wonderful aura of 2018.
Once again I’m wondering how this next year can possibly top the last. But who knows, I’ve said that before too.
Thank you for sharing! I love your “Take it as it comes” attitude. Just reading your post made me feel more laid back and relaxed- like I don’t have to jump right into goals for perfection either. It’s been a busy January and I’ve been feeling behind, but now I feel like it’s ok to postpone my goals until I can really give them a good shot instead of letting them inevitably get lost in the shuffle.
