A new year filled with possibilities

The nice thing about the start of a new year is that it leads to new beginnings with new possibilities. With each new year we can start again. When you stop to think about it, the difference between a year is a day. December 31st arrives and the next day a new year begins. It seems so weird when you really think about it. One day can change a year, one day has the possibility to change your whole trajectory. I have written a New Years blog for a few years now and it's always nice to reflect over the past year, what did I learn, what went well, what didn't go as planned.

When you stop to think about a new year beginning it can also be a bit overwhelming. Sometimes starting new can be a hard thing to do. When we start something new it can be intimidating, you're unsure of yourself and how things will turn out. When I think about the beginning of my business I can honestly say that it was hard. You are so unsure of yourself, you aren't sure what really works, what is

beneficial, what is not going to work. If I were to apply what I have learned in owning my own business personally, I would say to not be too hard on yourself. Each day does present a new possibility. It really doesn't take the date to change on the calendar for a change to a new year to start to make a positive change in your life. You can make a small change everyday of your life. And yes, you will mess up from time to time so be easy on yourself. You are making changes in the right direction with each small change.

So as we enter into a new year, what did I learn in the past year? I learned that when you feel like giving up, don't! You can't predict the future and can't see future opportunities. It's so easy to want to throw in the towel and give up but hold steady to be a 100% sure that you are making the right decision and not giving up too soon. 2023 allowed me to finally see much of my hard work come to fruition both personally and professionally. I learned what is working well and what needs to be changed to improve for the better. I learned that the hard work that I have been putting in is finally starting to show up in my life and it's great to reflect and see that something you've been doing is really working! There is no better confidence booster than knowing something you are doing is going the way you want it to and you are starting to see the positive results. I don't know about you but for me 2023 wasn't my absolute worst year so if I had to say what went wrong, I'd have to say that I still haven't reached to spot where I want to be entirely. I am getting there but not there wholeheartedly just yet. And this made me think? Are we truly ever where we want to be entirely in life? And if we do get to that mythical place, will that make us lose our drive to strive for more? That's something to ponder. So my personal take as we head into a new year, keep doing what's going right and work on the things that aren't. Seems like logical, right? Keep pushing forward doing what's right even when no one is looking because your reward is coming even when you think it's taking literally forever! Happy New Years 2024! Wow! Here's to a great year my friends filled with many possibilities!
