A Real New Year

Day 29 ImageOn January 1st 2015 I am NOT:

  • Going on a diet
  • Starting an exercise program
  • Enrolling in a class
  • Joining a webinar
  • Or participating in any of the hundreds of “must do” things that are being pushed right now.

Want to know why not?

Because in Seattle January 1st is winter time!

Because winter time is NOT the time to start things.

Having an abrupt end to this season of celebrating is tantamount to saying “up yours!”


Those things begun in January are usually discarded by early spring.


Because: “Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ~ Edith Sitwell

As far as I am concerned on January 1st (and into late-February), your time is best spent getting in touch with what YOU desire.  Not doing what everyone else is doing for fear that you are missing out!

Let me tell you some things I KNOW for sure:

  • You will not miss anything important if you first go inward to find YOU.
  • You must go inward on a regular basis, not just once and forget about it.
  • You will begin and begin again.

Want to know what I AM going to be doing beginning January 1st?

I am going to be. Period.

Will you join me?
