Do you have voicemail on your phone? Do you see that calls come in and think to yourself, “Yeah, I’ll get around to returning that call, one of these days” then, you get to the end of the week, month, or year and you never got around to it?
Welcome to January! The month I call aroundtoit. Because, here in the first month, of a new year, I can allow myself the luxury of finally getting around to all those things I have been putting off, like eating better, working out more often, cleaning my home more efficiently, you get the idea.
We’ve convinced ourselves, as a society, that we need a clean slate to give ourselves permission to make that fresh start without the guilt of procrastination weighing heavily upon our shoulders. So much so, that we not only look forward to it, we RESOLVE to make it happen! Gee, that’s a lot of pressure, eh?
Let’s give January a break. Let’s give ourselves some credit for simply knowing how to pace ourselves and prioritize. If it’s meant to be, we’ll get around to it.
