How are we already in February when yesterday I was still in December busy planning the 2018 calendars? Well, that’s okay, everyone knows that January is still considered the previous year and February is the real start to the new year.
By this time, New Year resolutions have been made and broken, probably numerous times already and on the fast track to being forgotten. That is usually why I myself try to avoid making a big fuss about the New Year and January with all of the resolution buzz and hype. I prefer to wait until February.
Usually, decisions made at the beginning of the year are from impulse or a sudden desire to change with the new year believing a new year, a new you. Although, realistically, it is just another day even if it another year.
I remember the days when January really meant a new year and now that I am older and in the working world I have come to realise that January is the way to catch up on what was unable to be completed in the previous year. It is also the month that lets you set up and prepare for the year ahead while deciding what it really is you wish to accomplish.
So for me, in my own way, I can only see February as the real start to the New Year. It is the month where you really look forward and tackle the year. You can bounce back from the spending of December and get back into an actual daily routine and find your groove.
HAVE A GREAT YEAR EVERYONE!
