Happy New Years Readers,
It is officially 2022, seven days ago and I know in the prior years, this usually means everyone has a New Year’s resolution, and “New me, New Year”, “starting over”, “I will start Monday” attitude when it comes to goals, aspirations, and wanting to do something that they missed out on in 2021, or stopped doing the previous year(s) because they either got bored, gave up, didn’t have time, no motivation, was distracted, and life happened all over again everyday.
I get it, I do. I fall in the category of people who put things off until “Monday” because I am too lazy to start now and because I’d rather pretend that my goals don’t exist until the start of the work week, but again, when Monday comes around, more excuses start to unravel and the cycle continues. So, yes, I get it. This blog is a good example of that, but I no longer have this mentality this year, because I want to develop my blog this year, develop my career, develop myself as a person this year, but unlike the previous years, I didn’t wait for Monday to arrive, I just did it! I went along for the ride no matter the day or time and landed here telling you — consistency is my problem when it comes to blogging, when it comes to anything that I want because it is hard for me until I make a routine of it. .. until I have hit a wall and then start to give up again, but i don’t want a wall to come between my life aspirations anymore and continue the cycle over and over again & neither should YOU!
There is no new you. Yes, you can evolve, and you can choose to change things about yourself, create new goals, and implement new routines to your life BUT it doesn’t mean it is a new you.. no, not at all. Actually, all this means is you have made the decision to finally make something a priority in your life that you hadn’t before — you did what you have been putting off, you might have had sacrifice to get to this point, but you are doing it because YOU WANT TO; END OF STORY. You want something bad enough, you will do it, you will learn, you will struggle, you will eventually conquer but you can’t give up, you can’t make excuses, and push dates back because you continue to choose Monday as a start date. What does this any of this have to do with fitness? As a professional in the field of fitness & health, this is me telling you, you don’t have to rebrand yourself as a new person in order to do something, you start your journey whenever you are ready & it doesn’t make you any less of a person because you didn’t do it “Monday” or because you didn’t finish last year — you are you — every-single-day. I don’t care when my clients start, it isn’t about your start date, it is about what will keep you going when you do decide to start something new for you & when “life happens”, how will you get around that obstacle? because life will happen and it doesn’t pause for you or I to catch up. #Facts
This is my start date, but who is keeping track? When I started this blog, I was consistent & I didn’t have life making decisions as often as I do now, I had more freedom, time seemed to be on my side and I fell in love with writing (meeting other bloggers, talking about my passion, learning from others, creating a positive space for everyone) etc. Fast forward to now — almost 6 years later & my life has changed in every way possible & I never seen any of this coming, but I am here for it every single day, I may not know my future or have all the answers when I need them most but I am trying to find my balance & find my happy place, find my way through obstacles, changes, and take it one day at a time with small steps vs one HUGE step forward and skipping all of the things that matter in between & rushing myself for something that will only cause me more anxiety and overwhelmingness. Goals are great! but only helpful when you map out how to get to them, how to progress in a manner that fits your current life (not the life before) because life is ever changing, so you can’t take my path because we are individuals and you can’t take the same path from 10 years ago because your life was different 10 years ago, so now you have to base your goals around your life that you have now and it isn’t fun sometimes people, and it is okay if you don’t have answers yet… that takes time & experiences. 2022 is not a new you, it is a new year for new experiences, more goals, more accomplishments, more celebrating your triumphs, more starting over when need be, and a year of figuring things out all over again — #cheers!
