I told mom a thousand times I’m an introvert with a faux fur allergy.

January is one of my favorite months. It feels like the clean slate all of us need here and there. It’s a new year, with new challenges, and new possibilities. But one of the biggest mistakes I’ve made in the past was making lofty New Years resolutions that left me feeling defeated instead of empowered. It’s because I adopted the false idea that starting on Jan. 1st, I could no longer mess up, eat unhealthy, have a lazy day, or drop the ball on any new project I had eagerly taken on. January 2017 I took a new approach to my clean slate. My new beginning would be embracing my mistakes as lessons learned and to love and respect myself. It literally took the entire year to learn to offer myself grace as I worked towards my goals. It helped prepare me for yet another year. 2018. Another clean slate. And what am I focusing on this year? That really, every new day is a clean slate. Sometimes a new moment is a clean slate. I’ve had several personal goals I’m focusing on. Some days I kill it. Some days I fall. But what’s important is that I keep getting up and moving forward with another valuable lesson under my belt that will better serve me in the future. Today, as Young and I went for a walk, and as we were nearing the 2 mile mark, I was reminded that every step counts. Every motion forward matters. Yes, we stopped and took a selfie. We slowed down at certain points while we walked briskly at others. But the point is, despite stopping to have fun, walking at different speeds, we got to where we were going. Same thing with life. I may stop and enjoy the view. I may fall and bruise a knee. I may run. I may walk. Some days I may only be able to crawl. But I’ll keep moving forward. Because I am determined to get to where I’m meant to go. ️ #every #step #counts #keep #moving #forward #mistakes #are #lessons #nothing #is #perfect #dontgiveup #beyou #loveyourself #walk #run #crawl #justdontquit
