New Year doesn’t have to mean New You

#MentalHealthMonday⁣⁣⁣⁣If your new year isn't starting off with a bang, I feel you. And I want to remind you that it's completely okay.⁣⁣⁣⁣A couple of weeks ago I was feeling SO GOOD - my upper cervical pain was minimal and my energy was the best it’s been in months. It was like a sign that as 2019 came to an end, so would my healing! And that 2020 would be all about thriving, FINALLY!⁣⁣⁣⁣Then my body said NOPE. ⁣⁣⁣⁣I was so frustrated and sad. I desperately wanted a clean slate for the new year. I was beyond ready to move on from the pain and setbacks of 2019.⁣⁣⁣⁣Instead, I apparently had more lessons to learn:⁣⁣⁣⁣That life doesn’t necessarily have cut and dry ends and beginnings, as much as we’d like that.⁣⁣⁣⁣That sometimes one year spills into the next.⁣⁣⁣⁣That healing isn’t linear.⁣⁣⁣⁣That you don’t have to kick off the new year or new decade in a big way.⁣⁣⁣⁣My health has been such a struggle for 10 months now. I’m definitely getting better, but my healing didn't suddenly end December 31 with a brand new healthy me on January 1 like I wanted.⁣⁣⁣⁣After crying about my situation and being forced to spend days in bed yet again, I came to terms with it. Here's where I'm at: I'm healthier than I was last March, I'm continuing to heal and move forward, and that's what really matters. ⁣⁣⁣So remember, if you couldn't go for your big goals on January 1 for whatever reason, it's okay. You can start anytime. Your timeline doesn’t have to match up with the new year.⁣⁣⁣⁣And if you need ideas on how to be mentally healthy this year, my partner @mentalhealthamerica can help.

A couple of weeks ago I was feeling SO GOOD – my upper cervical pain was minimal and my energy was the best it’s been in months. It was like a sign that as 2019 came to an end, so would my healing! And that 2020 would be all about thriving, FINALLY!⁣⁣⁣⁣

Then my body said NOPE. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

I was so frustrated and sad. I desperately wanted a clean slate for the new year. I was beyond ready to move on from the pain and setbacks of 2019.

⁣⁣⁣⁣Instead, I apparently had more lessons to learn:⁣⁣⁣⁣

That life doesn’t necessarily have cut and dry ends and beginnings, as much as we’d like that.⁣⁣⁣⁣

That sometimes one year spills into the next.⁣⁣⁣⁣

That healing isn’t linear.⁣⁣⁣⁣

That you don’t have to kick off the new year or new decade in a big way.⁣⁣⁣⁣

My health has been such a struggle for 10 months now. I’m definitely getting better, but my healing didn’t suddenly end December 31 with a brand new healthy me on January 1 like I wanted.⁣⁣⁣⁣

After crying about my situation and being forced to spend days in bed yet again, I came to terms with it. Here’s where I’m at: I’m healthier than I was last March, I’m continuing to heal and move forward, and that’s what really matters. ⁣⁣⁣

So remember, if you couldn’t go for your big goals on January 1 for whatever reason, it’s okay. You can start anytime. Your timeline doesn’t have to match up with the new year.
