January is almost over and I’m wondering about all the people who were hopeful about the New Year and if they are still excited and anticipating the best.
I think I spotted the first New Year meme just a few days before Christmas. I don’t remember the exact words, but it basically stated that 2016 was going to be better. As the memes continued to roll in I started to get the impression that many of us are quick to detach from what we considered a mediocre year.
I can honestly say that in the past I have probably self-consciously done the same thing. Yet, for some reason I saw things a little different this time around. Perhaps I’m starting to appreciate the little accomplishments in life. It also, could be that after years of searching for something I finally received the answer in the month of December right as 2015 was coming to a close.
As I type this blog, I think to myself yes! All those things and so many other little experiences good or bad are exactly why I took a little of 2015 into the New Year with me. What captured my attention through this reflection is that I understood that my life wasn’t going to magically change once the clock hit midnight. Change, growth, business ventures, raising children, losing weight, life it all takes time and I will not beat myself up and nor should you.
There have been obstacles in my way, but for every time I decided to continue I was one step closer to my goals. The last month in 2015 was proof that all my previous work was worth it.
On December 31, 2015 Urban Mommy ‘s Facebook page posted a meme and this is what it said, “ We wish you 12 months of happiness, 52 weeks of fun, 365 days of success, 8760 hours of good health 52600 minutes of good luck and 31536000 seconds of joy. Happy New Year!”
This was by far the best meme I scrolled upon and I hope that you will consider those words when you feel like things aren’t working in your favor.
