January 1 is the date most people look to as our opportunity to press the reset button. We target the new year as our chance to get rid of patterns and habits that hold us back and start fresh. But the busyness of the holidays and the demands of our every day lives can overshadow our goal setting and resolution-ing, and we often find ourselves a week (or month) into the year with no bold resolutions to declare. Sound familiar?
While a new calendar year sets a lovely tone for new beginnings, it is just a symbol. January 1 is no better day to refresh and renew than January 7 or January 27 or July 10. Each day we have an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and move forward with intention.
Perhaps you have already mapped out the path you want to travel this year, which is great! But it is just as likely that you haven't made a plan - or have already fallen short of your aims. And that's okay too. Dust yourself off, set (or renew) your intention, and move forward. What matters isn't the date, but your effort. Begin your future...now.
