“New year, new you!”
“Out with the old, in with the new!”
“We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them.”
“What is the one word that will change your life this year?”
Both our social media feeds and our brains brim with thoughts this January about new beginnings and deep introspection. Nothing makes us want to examine ourselves, our habits, and our resolutions like the start of a new year. Mentally, it’s not just the first month on a clean calendar; it represents the chance to make a fresh start and begin a new year with a clean slate.
Whether our 2018 was awful or amazing, we want 2019 to be better. We want more fitness, more joy, more abundance. And even if we point fingers or make excuses the rest of the year, in January we lay the responsibility for our future failures or successes squarely on our own shoulders.
Many of us know our Enneagram number (I’m a seven) or the result of our Personality Color Quiz (I’m a blue). In an ever-changing world, we seek to know and understand ourselves, but often, we place too much value in those results and allow them to limit or define us. All things seem possible, basking in the hope of January’s reset button.
