I find the week between Christmas and New Years to be an odd time. After being so busy with Christmas festivities I find I am tired but at the same time wanting to make the most out of the days I have off. We cleaned, traveled, watched movies, ran, and spent more time with family and friends. That’s a lot packed into a few days. While I love all of that time spent, for a creature of habit so much of it is out of my regular routine and I find myself craving a little “regular programming.” I am grateful to have November Project to show up to in the mornings. I welcome the routine. It also helped me keep track of what day of the week it was! 😉
For each of you who were able to share their morning with us today, thank you! You each rocked the Burpee Block workout! Alas, we did not end our NP2019 with a button. Don’t worry, there’s always next year!
Speaking of next year, this is the final blog post for 2019. After volunteering to write today’s post I immediately felt this pressure of needing to write something poignant & inspiring. I mean not only is it the last blog post of the year, its the last one of the decade. But you know what, it’s really only the last blog post until the next one. And the next one is Wednesday, a Wednesday that happens to also be January 1st. But just like this morning, we will wake up and take on the day. Will we wake up any differently Wednesday than we do tomorrow or next Thursday (other than perhaps a little more tired given we’ve stayed up past our regular bedtime)? Not really.
I don’t know that there needs to be a big pressure to just because we’re turning the calendar. While a new calendar year often invites one to reflect upon where you’ve been and where you’d like to go, that can and should happen throughout the year. We don’t need to wait until the start of a new decade, year, month, or week. Each day we are blessed to wake up we can set an intention for it to be the best day possible and work towards that goal. How we treat ourselves, how we interact with others, how we care for our loved ones, how we pursue our goals; we determine each of these things by how we choose to show up each and every day.
So be reflective, maybe set some new years resolutions if you want, but remember, while it is a new decade, a new year; it’s also just another Wednesday, one that you choose to show up for or not. The same way you’ll choose how you show up on Thursday, and Friday, and Saturday…you get my point.
On that note…Happy New Year my friends! ✨
