Recently I was sitting around the table with a group of new friends, and since it happened to be New Years Day, we were sharing our dreams and hopes for the new year, as well as some of our best memories from the year that had passed.
At one point, someone asked this question:
What do you plan to do differently this year from last year?
Each of us thought about it and slowly offered our answers. Before long, we had all shared except for my friend Katie. Katie is one of my favorite people, and I respect her a ton, so I waited patiently for her response.
Finally, she said: “I don’t know… I don’t really think about the New Year that way. I guess I just don’t wait for a certain time of year to do something differently”
“If I want to change something about my life, I just change it.”
Her response was really simple, but totally profound for me. I mean, how many of us know we want something to change in our lives—but we’re waiting for the “right time” to start over?
What if we don’t have to wait anymore?
What if it’s just this easy to start over?
Honestly, I like New Year’s Resolutions. I know many people don’t, but I do. I love the having a point on my calendar—a designated day—that marks the end of one season and the start of another. Something about it feels fresh and exciting to me.
But my friend Katie’s advice also has me thinking: If I realize, in February or May or November that something needs to change about my life, why would I wait for January to change it?
Why can’t I change it now?
Better yet, if my resolutions aren’t working out the way I thought they would, the way I wanted them to—why not go ahead and make the adjustments needed right this minute?
Do I have to wait until January to fix it? Why can’t I just fix it now?
What if it’s this easy to start over?

I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at email@example.com and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact.
