You don’t need to win 2018 on its first month | Thoughts

Trust me when I say that you don’t always have to start the year right. I mean is there even a wrong or a right when it comes to starting a year?

It’s okay if you weren’t able to wake up early even though you promised yourself to be an early riser this year. It’s okay if you weren’t able to keep yourself from splurging even though you told yourself you’d be saving your money from now. It’s okay if you didn’t find that thing you wanted to have this year. It’s okay if you haven’t sent that long-awaited application for post-grad yet. It’s okay if you haven’t yet accomplished any of the changes you promised yourself at the end of last year. It’s even okay if you haven’t succeeded on checking off anything on your to-do list this month.

It’s okay. You may just have to go with the flow. Life has its unexpected twists and turns.

Just think of the new year as the time given to you to start anew. You don’t have to succeed on anything on the first month. You can take your time. Baby steps are fine. As long as your mind is set on your goals – long or short-term – and your determination is as strong as your heart lets on, then you’ll be fine. As long as you are starting and slowly moving forward on your goals, then you’ll sooner or later succeed.

You just have to remember that slacking off on your way to success and always depending on other people will be regretful in the future but it’s okay to take a break. Or slow down. You have your own pace on achieving your goals.

You don’t need to win at the start of 2018. You just have to start something.

  1. I never really understood the whole fuss we make and party and celebrate the novelty of New Year. There’s always a good time to start or end something and the new year need not be the only time for it.
    Your words are inspiring! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. For us here, it’s become tradition (and may a bit of superstition) to welcome the new year with noise and food, which doesn’t really need extravagance – just a TV New Year special in max volume and (midnight) meal with the family.

      Thank you! That was what I was aiming for. Lol. Also, some might think that I’m just making excuses for things I haven’t achieved at this day and age but I’m starting to believe I’m the only one who gets to have a say in my decisions and the responsibility for my actions. 😀

      1. I don’t feel your words are like making excuses for not achieving planned goals or what others expect of you. And ofcourse, I agree with you. You solely possess the right over your own decisions. 🙂 🙂 🙂
        And now that you have pointed it out, I must mention the one good thing that New Year does sometimes is to bring the whole extended family together in a celebration and bringing hopes that you’ll meet your near ones again. 🙂 🙂 🙂
