I have always felt a wave of pressure at the start of a new year.
There is the excitement of the clean slate, making new goals & resolutions for the new year, and the promise for making this new year even better than the last.
But I’ll be honest when I say that I’ve been struggling for the past nine days to come up with any goals for the new year. And it’s freaking me out big time.
I am a very goal oriented and goal motivated person. So you can understand how confused I feel nine days into 2012 without a single goal or direction for my life.
If it wasn’t for this card I accidently found at the store the other day, I would feel even more lost.
I say accidently because I believe there are no accidents. Yeah yeah, I’m the ‘everything happens for a reason’ type of girl.
So as I’m struggling to understand my reason for being in Georgia, with a fresh clean slate of life and a whole new year to mold into my masterpiece, I look to that card for a breath of relief.
‘I am exactly where I should be.
I am doing exactly what I should be doing’
I think I’m just in a little new year funk because I know that as each day I get more comfortable with my new life here, we will be moving again this summer and will have to start all over again.
So in the meantime, I will still be working on being the healthiest version of me.
And well…a clean slate to me means the possibilities are endless.
So I’m not going to dwell on my lack of resolutions but instead delve into 2012 with open arms and an open mind.
Make it a great year!
