How did it go for you?

Well, January is almost gone. How did it go for you?

I stuck to my diet but the numbers didn’t go down as planned. That is a bit disappointing! But I’m proud of sticking to the plan. That is a good start!

And even if your resolutions were in the trash two weeks ago, that is okay. January is a start! Take a deep breath and keep starting!

Did you get that one word? I’ll be honest, I didn’t think of one till yesterday. Better late than never!

But it is a good word. A powerful word.

This is probably the shortest post I will ever do. I’ll be honest, there are several in my circle who are not having the best January ever, it has not been a fresh start or a clean slate for them.  Flu season, ulcers, depression and other ills have destroyed dietary goals and motivation to do anything but survive.

And that too, is okay.

Survival is not selfish.

And there is nothing wrong with starting anew in February, March or next Thursday!

Life is a gift, but it is a one time offer.

As a dear friend of mine used to say often, “Trust God, move forward.”

So as January peter’s out on us, don’t fret! Just find a way to keep moving forward!
