Starting over in 2017…
In 2016, we all had goals, dreams, ideas. We had plans on how to make our lives, jobs and selves better. Sadly, 2016 had other ideas for us. I know I had HUGE plans for my business and myself. 2016 was going to be my year to improve. But things went down hill very quickly. There were job issues, health issues like my gallbladder suddenly deciding it was going to be a problem and the recovery road.
At the end of 2016 I came up with a big game changer idea for my business and myself (check out www.blue-lotusmassage.com for new stuff in the next few months) but before I could and start making it happen, I got majorly sick. 2016’s curse had given me one last thing to deal with. I’m talking the kind of sick where I was throwing up, not able to eat or drink for three weeks, no energy, stamina, or will to do anything. It was the worst feeling ever. I am someone who is always active, always thinking and acting. And with this illness, I was pretty much a useless blob. It SUCKED!!
Anyways, my big plans to get going for the New Year were shot.
But that doesn’t mean I’m giving up. 2016 wasn’t the be all and end all. 2017 is a chance to start over and begin again, even if it means not starting Jan. 1. See, I’m the kind of person that believes as long as you start sometime and commit to finishing, you’re still doing well. It’s when you keep putting off starting in favour of waiting for some special time that never comes that you’re wasting time. So I will go ahead with my plans despite it being the middle of January. My plans were delayed, not terminated. I was hoping to be up and ready by March and it might be April or May before I am going. But that’s ok!
I’m still going forward! I’m still making things happen. And you can too. Anyone reading this. Delays happen, life happens. But you’ve got to keep moving forward to make your dreams and goals happen. Life rewards the ones that keep moving forward. Stopping and giving up or condemning life because of a delay or complication only gets you stuck where you are. And once you’re stuck, it’s hard to move.
Blue Lotus Massage is going to see some big changes happening and I’m very excited about that. Mostly because the changes can be inserted to become lifestyle habits. I am really looking forward to making these changes and nothing is going to stop me from doing that.
So I’m back for 2017. And 2017 is going to be my year!! And it can be yours too :).
