and just like that, it’s February


The first month of the year,
A perfect time to start all over again,
Changing energies and deserting old moods,
New beginnings, new attitudes”
― Charmaine J Forde

I love beginnings — especially as it relates to the calendar. A new year, month, week or even day provides refreshed opportunities and a chance to begin again.

It will likely come as no surprise that January is one of my favorite months. It’s the quintessential new beginning. The final flipping of the calendar. A new number. That first page in a new planner. The start of a wide-open year ripe with newness and innocence and free of the baggage of just one day prior.

As I reflect on the first 31 days of this new year, I’m grateful for a positive and productive first month of 2019. I killed my goals and am excited to find what the rest of the year brings. And, despite February being the month which I typically despise (I equate it to the Tuesday of the year — blah), it’s chock-full of exciting plans and opportunities. Bring it, February!
