I have seen a lot of posts with the meme saying “January was a trial month, my New Year starts again Feb, 1st.” But no, it doesn’t have to be that way. Whatever happened in January, happened, and that’s okay. You simply keep going, just in a better direction. Any mistakes you made, hopefully you learned from them. Whatever task you did not start, you now realize you need to really start it. That goal that you started and gave up on, at least you are a little bit stronger and will go farther this time. January was nothing but a small chapter in your book of 2016, and you have a whole lot of more book to go. Don’t discount or get rid of January. Embrace it, read it, decipher it, accept it and let’s keep going! I’m ready! Are you?
