We once again welcome a new year that brings with it a message of hope. A dawning of a brand new chapter in our lives that shows us that it’s okay to let go of the past and start again. It’s a reset button. It’s an opportunity to reinvent ourselves but only if we have the strength to keep moving forward. It’s one thing to sit down and create a long list of New Year’s resolutions, and it’s another to have the self-discipline to follow through with them.
What are you willing to do differently this year? What are you willing to sacrifice so that you can finally live the creative life that you have always imagined? This year instead of sitting down and coming up with a massive list of resolutions or covering your wall with a visualization map — come up with one thing that you are willing to do and then just do it. You don’t need to prepare. You don’t need to buy anything else to make it happen. Just do one thing.
Instead of worrying about tomorrow or wondering how you are going to stick with it all year. Just take one small step today in the right direction. As the ancient sage Lao-Tzu reminds us, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Don’t waste any more time preparing — Just start walking and create the life you were meant to live!
“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”
~Rainer Maria Rilke
