You did so much last year. You may not think you did, but I promise you that you did. Some of you may not have included how many school lunches you made or finding your way through postpartum depression or how many times you got up with a fussy baby or going back to work after maternity leave on your Christmas card, but they should be acknowledged somewhere. I made myself a list of all the things I did last year. Everything from staying mostly patient with a teething toddler to grieving personal loss to running and growing this company. Then I thanked myself. I actually typed it out – THANK YOU, SELF. I think you should do it too. This is the month for renewal. It’s not the month to think about all you didn’t do last year and then guilt yourself into doing more this year. Renewal comes from recognizing all that you did do and, coming from that place of gratitude and compassion, deciding what you WANT to do this year. Or just this month. Or just today.
