“Starting Over” or  “Happy New Year”…the many meanings.
Josi Gago New Year's message

The start of a new year is like saying it’s Monday all over again, but only on a bigger scale.

You see, I truly believe we some how sub-consciously give ourselves permission to fall-short, fail and not quite meet expectations just so we can begin again or start over. After all, what good is an accomplishment if we don’t work for it..what value do we really give it, not to mention the rest of the world? As we all know, without rain, we can’t appreciate the sunshine. It happens subtly and in many areas of our lives, take for example, losing weight…how sweet it is to fit into a pair of jeans that only 2 weeks prior didn’t get past the hips (real story).

Here I am trying to figure out where to hide this little guy while enjoying these  delicious treats!

To lose 5 lbs becomes a feat accomplished and a selfie in the making…only to do it all over again next month or next year as a resolution.  Ha…belly laugh…I gained 10 lbs just this Christmas holiday but lost it just to wear my parrot dress again!

Another one is how we work so diligently just before we go on vacation and manage to get rid of and effectively delegate all of our “pending” work yet don’t do it the rest of the year. Why, you ask…because we thrive on the ebbs and flows of it all. It feeds something in us and we create in ourselves the situations that generate the emotions that keep us wanting more and more.

So while we complain about Mondays and live for annual resolutions, let us pause and enjoy the moments we have in between knowing that we can always “start over” and have “new beginnings” as we see fit.

So remember to celebrate your “Hello Monday” with just as much enthusiasm as you do your “Happy New Year” from here on out!

Josi New Year's toast

Celebrate today, celebrate on Mondays, celebrate everyday!

Happy New Year and start again!
