And yet… there is something else about that day. Sure, it starts a new month. Yes, it starts a new year.
Psychologically, that new start… it matters.
We all need new starts. That is what I loved about being in school. When the semester ended, no matter how well (or poorly) I had done, it was over. The grade was locked in. Sure, I could consider what I could have done differently, but I couldn’t undo anything.
I moved on to the next class. A fresh start. New assignments, new opportunities, new possibilities.
Many of us get caught in the past, trying to figure out how to undo or redo what has already happened.
For this moment, though, as the new year starts, let’s look forward. Let’s look to the new year and decide how we want to move forward. How we want the next year to be MORE of what we want… new opportunities and possibilities.
In this episode of the Thriveology Podcast, I discuss some ways to start the new year strong. Listen in to find out.
