I’m seeing a lot of posts about how the start of 2018 is the perfect time for a fresh start- new week, new month, new year, and a full moon to boot. And that’s great, and I wish you all the fresh starts you need, but listen
If there isn’t a dramatic turnaround that’s okay.
If your new year sucks that’s okay.
If you give things a try and get back on your bullshit within a day or a week or a month, that’s okay.
If you can’t change things on January 1st, that’s okay.
This is a nice and precise date, but change can happen at any time. You can make improvements and your situation can change at any time. Our calendar system is kind of arbitrary, and sometimes personal things don’t line up with what we think they’re supposed to. Sometimes great changes can be made randomly, midway through September. Sometimes it takes time for things to change.
I hope you have a fantastic new year, but if this isn’t the fresh start you want or you need, that’s okay.
You’ll be okay. Happy new year.
