After taking a break for the holidays, I am ready embark on a New Year. During this time most of us tend to reflect on the past and make resolutions for the new.
January is named after the Roman god Janus that had two faces. One face looked back on the prior year, and the other looked forward.
Looking back, we can see our accomplishments, failures, and pinnacle turns in our lives. Some of us had a great year, while others did not. We are in a constant state of education. Reflect on your triumphs and learn from your mistakes.
I know—for a FACT—it’s not easy to keep resolutions. Shoot, I already broke one the next day. I promised my family that I wouldn’t go on Facebook but [maybe] once a month. And the following day, I was checking my status, posting funny things, and in a private chat with friends. Failing miserably doesn’t make you a horrible person. After all, experts say it takes 21 days to form a habit.
This New Years, stick-to a routine of writing everyday. Even if you can spare a few minutes per day it’s better than nothing. By the end of January, you could be working more than a few minutes, and have developed a habit.
Buy a new calendar and mark every day you complete the task.
You can do this!
I have faith in you.
Happy New Year!
