I had plans to share a new plan on New Year’s Day. Of course, I was hit by a bug that I didn’t see coming. I should have. My husband was down for the count for several days. I called him “milkin’ it.” Now, he’s laughing at me and has shared his glee for the last several days, “Ha, you’re just milkin’ it!!!” Thank goodness, I’m able to stand up right now and am movin’ about.
So, as I’ve spent the last several New Year Days, laid out–NONE of my New Year Plans have begun. Does it matter? Are New Year Resolutions any different than new goals? Yes and No. There is definitely something to be said about starting a New Year! I’m always excited about the prospect of the New Year. But, I’m always excited about something trying something new or revisiting an old goal that didn’t quite make it to the top priority of years past.
Today, I got to thinking about how to ring in Go Workout Mom. It’s a New Year. It’s a New Day. Each day brings the promise of something new. My little ones are four and five now and they bring something new to each and every day. As you know, the mundane mix with the small surprises they throw our way. Whatever our plans, we can always look to a New Year and New Day with the anticipation of achieving our way.
This year, this day I am striving to be a better mother, wife, servant of the Lord, and example for others. I may slip. I will fall, but I will not give up in making a better way for others to follow.
