Monday Mood: Fresh Start

It’s Monday.  A new start to the week.  And the second week of a brand new Year. A time when people wake up to possibility of new beginnings.  A time for reflection and cleaning up our act, even if just a little bit.

We like to keep things fresh. From fresh vegetables to a new relationship, everything that’s fresh is uplifting.  It’s just making sure the vegetables don’t go bad before eating them, and that the relationship continues to evolve instead of dissolve.  A little effort goes a long way in trying to maintain a balance.

Personally I think that the main reason so many resolutions fail is that people set unreasonable standards for January 1st.  Why not just pick a date and do something to improve your life, be it in business or relationships or both?

I’m certainly no expert (my plan to work out more starting in January never succeeds and I’m still not fluent in Spanish) but contemplating a little positive change can be a definite mood enhancer.

My little step forward is having joined a women’s empowerment workshop in order to set a new intention to this new year and prepare for something fresh.  We’ll see what comes of it.  More later…

“A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery.”  — Sarah Ban Breathnach
How about you?  Any intentions of making an intention?
