Any Day Can Be Your Personal New Year

You don't have to wait for the New Year to make a fresh start.

It’s Rosh Hashanah. Happy New Year if you celebrate!

Rosh Hashanah is the time when people of the Jewish faith reflect, repent, and prepare to be more righteous in the new year. They get ready to make a fresh start.

I love this concept. In fact, I love it so much I’ve made it a regular habit – one that I highly recommend.

Pretty much every night, I do a daily debrief. This is my time to take stock of what has transpired.

Years ago, I used to lay down and hone in on all the things I did “wrong” that day. If you read last week’s post, you know that I used to beat myself up for not being perfect.

Well, I kicked that nasty habit to the curb! Instead, I recap the day in a positive way, asking myself: What happened? What made me smile? What am I grateful for? What could I have done better? What will I take away from the day? What memories do I want to hold onto? What yummy morsel did I eat that I want to eat again real soon??

While having an official time to prepare and celebrate for the new year is awesome, just know that every day can be your personal new year if you want it to be.

It’s your choice. You don’t have to wait for the new year to make a fresh start.

Maybe, in the next hour or so, you’ll find yourself doing something you don’t like. That’s okay. You don’t have to stay in that place. Just acknowledge it and make a decision to do better next time. It’s that simple.

You don’t have time to dwell in negativity, because you’re meant to do great things and “bee” happy!

I repeat: You don’t have time to dwell in negativity, because you’re meant to do great things and “bee” happy!

Is making a fresh start something you struggle with? Do guilt or a tendency toward perfectionism keep you stuck? Let me know. I’d love to help.

You don’t have to go at it alone. That’s what coaches are for. They give you the support, skills, motivation, and inspiration to be the best player you can be in this game called life.

If you’ve got any tips, “bee” a gem and share in the comments below or on Facebook and/or Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you!
