"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
January always makes me feel motivated, optimistic and hopeful...let's be honest, I am mostly optimistic and hopeful...but in January, it is so much different for me. It's a whole year stretching out ahead. All the holidays, the mundane days, the potential snow days, the lazy/rainy days, the changing seasons all on the horizon.
It's 365 more days to smile and laugh. It's 52 more weeks to experience the ups and downs of life. It's 12 more months to reach the goals I have set.
But it's a finite time. There will only be one 2019. This is my one opportunity to make 2019 a great year. I take it as a personal challenge to get the year right.
Sure there will be days that make me feel like a failure...that make me feel like I squandered another opportunity...but those days are few and far between.
However, if I take Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote to heart and decide that every day is the best day...even the days that seem bad will have a purpose.
