I'm really geeked up for the new year to begin, but I'm also a little sad in that I want to find a way to bottle up this enthusiasm so that I can feel the newness each day. Why is it that we feel a sense of revitalization and excitement to start a new year but we don't do the same thing with each day?
I think it can all begin with the way that I start and end each day. A little over a month ago I started my 5-Minute Journal, and I absolutely love it. It has actually started to impact how I view each day, because I write down what I'm going to do to make the day great and then at the end of the day I reflect on amazing things that happened during the day.
So, in that sense I feel like I'm moving closer to appreciating each day for what it has to offer, but I also want that sense of newness and energy that can accompany it if I truly am excited about it.
Lesson Learned: Treat each day like it's about to be the start of something new, because it is!
How do you keep the excitement for a new endeavor from lessening over time?
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
