Checking in on Week 31’s Task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You!
Task 31 was to pick a day this week to start something…to make a day this week your NEW YEAR.
The idea is this…
NOW is always a good time to start something or to start again when it is something you intended to do or “fell off the wagon” from doing (like a New Year’s resolution/intention).
There is no need to trash talk your self for not doing or “falling off the wagon”, because everyday really is a new day.
Guilt and shame are not great motivators.
New Year’s day is no different from today.
Seeing every day as a NEW DAY allows you to not wallow in the past, even the past of 8 hours ago, and provides hope and peace.
Many nights I journal about my day–what I’m grateful for, where I saw God working in my life, and a kind-hearted look at what I could have done better. I am always grateful that, if I wake up, and so far so good, that tomorrow is a new day. One where I get to live again moving, often one infinitesimal step closer, to a better person.
Have a Happy New Year’s Day this week…and every day!
Cheering You on to a Whole New Every Morning Heart,
love this! especially when you said that guilt and shame are not good motivators
