Eleven days have passed. I am now just ready to get clear on the next steps to take for the year. It makes sense that after the holiday daze there needs to be time to recuperate. Holidays are wonderful and yet they are also super charged with emotions and lots and lots of work.
At the beginning of the year I set small goals for my days like eating oatmeal and listening more. These are valid goals and I stand by them firmly and with better digestion and conversations. Still today I sit with my journal and I think of the months to come. I write down things that have been on my mind and write 4 true things that are important for me. My attention gets pulled away and I close my journal. Then a sudden feeling of completion fills me. For now that is enough.
Small steps, so many great authors, thinkers and influencers, stand by this advice. Break it down. Do a little bit even if a teeny bit each day. Consistency has more weight than sporadic Herculean effort. And boy is it true! Sometimes with the best of intentions we fill a page or two or three of things we will set out to change but in that we can get lost in the enormity of the task and wait till next year. Minimalism is trending what if we apply it to our new years resolutions? What if we stick to a little bit that we absolutely need, can relish in that and build on that?
What would that look like for you?
All the love,
