For me, January feel like it had 7 weeks instead of 4. Not necessarily in a bad way but golly it felt like the month was never going to end. Usually for me January 1 is a time I get really excited, it feel like a fresh start – like most people. This year though, for me, I felt like December melted in to January and it was the same old thing. Nothing magical happened once the calendar switched to 2015. It was just another day, and so was the next.
January, for me, was a rush to catch up and try to catch my breath kind of month I suppose. New routines, new year revisions, new clients, doctor appointments for baby and cardiology, and the reality that life is going to be so different in just a few short months. There was a lot of scrambling and feeling out of balance for me. January was stressful in a lot of ways and blessings in others but not that I’m looking back I feel like I can take a deep breath. I feel “caught up” so to speak and it feels good. I feel like the lofty stressors that rested on my shoulders from December to January are finally gone now that I’m caught up and breathing feels so good. Aaahh!
I feel like February is the dawn of the new year for me. It’s obviously a month late but walking into this month I feel lighter. I feel like I have my crap together. I feel more balanced. I feel more in control and put together. It’s like a fresh start right here in February and it feels so good.
