So, a new year has begun and we’re already halfway into the first month. Can you believe it? I would like to sit here and be able to say that I am not a New Years Resolution sort of gal but I am. Sometimes you need a designated date to say, “Today I will mark a new beginning”. I hope that whatever resolution you have picked you are sticking with it. It’s been said that it takes a minimum of 21 days to make a habit so you’re already 15 days into at this time. Keep going.
Have you already had a hiccup that threw you off of your goal? Pick yourself back up and KEEP GOING. I want this to be an underlying theme for this year. Keep Going. My two big sayings in life is, “It’s better late than never,” and “No more looking back with ‘I would’ve, should’ve or could’ve’.” How do I stick to my sayings? I just KEEP GOING. It’s important to note that you mustn’t trudge on and lose sight of the original goal. Always keep that ending in mind, but know that sometimes you might have to change the path to get there. So you thought you’d run a half marathon by May but you got overwhelmed in work/life and haven’t had time to run everyday like you thought. It’s okay, KEEP GOING. Instead of “by May” change it to “I am going to run a Marathon this year”. Tweak your path to running in the mornings before work or much of anything else can intrude and crumble your plans.
Look, we are all mere humans. We are going to sabotage ourselves at certain times and make poor decisions but that doesn’t give you an excuse to give up. Part of keeping going is to get real with yourself and get rid of the excuses. No more BUT’s and CANT’s. Realize that a lot of the time the word that should go there is WONT and won’t is a choice.
So KEEP up the great work, or, get back GOING on that goal either way just KEEP GOING.
