After the long weekend, here we are. Back in the saddle of a new week with all of the extra weight that it’s the new year full of new chances etc. Do you feel that way too?
Are you excited for the possibilities that lie ahead? Or are you feeling that there’s nothing different except the 0 changed to a 1 – as in 2020 became 2021?
I’m a bit tired this morning so I’m slow moving. Maybe an extra coffee will help. Fingers crossed. I’ve been reading blogs and all the talk about new year goals and resolutions and how I want to lose 20 lbs etc. It makes my head spin.
I do write some goals down, but I don’t do resolutions because I know me, I don’t stick with them. I can’t feel that added weight on my shoulders to stir up anxiety or if I don’t make the goal, that heavy feeling of I’m a failure. And while I could certainly lose a little of the isolation during lockdown weight that’s been added to my frame, my thought is to just move more with the help of the FitBit reminder and take it more seriously. That’s what I mean about goals.
While the calendar shows that it’s the first Monday of the New Year (feigned enthusiasm), I’m rebelling. I need some more time to wrap my head around that fact that we’ve turned the corner on 2020 and are now into 2021 by a few days. I’m not one to think that just because the year has changed that things are going to be completely healed or different. I’m feeling a bit more cynical than that today. And while I’m ever hopeful, I have learned a thing or two in my over 5 decades of life. So I’m taking it in stride.
Let’s see how this week rolls out. How are you feeling this morning?
