There are 28 days left in 2014. Only 28! Today is day 337 of the year, which means it’s almost time for new calendars, planners, and goals for 2015.
That might feel a bit depressing for some, especially if there are goals you set back on Jan. 1, 2014 that have gone forgotten until now. Perhaps you started working on that big dream but lost focus. Maybe, you are now waiting for the new year to relaunch that goal. I know I never started a diet on a Wednesday. Somehow, Monday was the only day I could start a grand fitness plan. A new week meant a fresh start, right? (Especially after having indulged in several “last meals” over the weekend.) And as for other goals, they always began at the start of new week or month or year.
I say no more. No more waiting. No more procrastinating. No more delays. Yesterday, on a Tuesday, I set a new goal. I will join in BlogHer’s December NaBloPoMo. Might I fall short of posting every day? Perhaps. But, don’t we all risk failure when setting a goal? Failure, I’ve come to accept, doesn’t mean I failed, it means I tried. If I spend any more of my life waiting for the perfect time, perfect day, perfect month or year, I risk missing my opportunity to fail or, more importantly, my chance to soar. And, as a parent, that is perhaps one of the most important lessons I can teach my girls.
Carpe diem, my friends, and, let’s all soar together!
