Happy New Year

The last day of 2017 is rolling on by. The cold winter has embraced Wisconsin in force. Reminding us that nature is indeed merciless. What did you do this year that you were not proud of? Was there anything that just truly sucked? Now what was your winning moments? Those times that life just happened in all the right ways? The planned vacation? The personal best on a 5K? A new job? Or was it that you planned just to live each day to their fullest?
2018 creeps closer. Each second drops. A new year turns to face you. What are your goals for this year? What are your whys? Why do you get up? Why do you push yourself harder? Faster? To read more. To study more. To try harder. A date on the calendar doesn’t have to mean ‘Today is the day I start’. It can help. It sets a point in time when decisions were made. But it shouldn’t be the only day you make resolutions. Every day you should tell yourself ‘Not this day! I will not just lay curled in my warm bed. Not. This. Day!’ Every day is a chance to rewrite yourself. Everyday is a chance to be the person you want to be. Opportunities are dropped at our feet all the time. Make this day your day. Make this hour your hour. Make this breath your new breath.
