A Fresh Start

I LOVE when the first day of the month is on the first day of the week.  It screams “fresh start” to me.

I guess you could say a fresh start is a “reboot” of sorts.  Just like a computer needs a reboot every once in a while, our body, mind, and habits need a reboot occasionally, too.

Spiritually, I always read the book of Proverbs every month. I read the chapter in Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month it is.  That means that today, I get to start all over again by reading chapter 1. That is wisdom I desperately need!

I’m also starting a new exercise routine today. I discovered a new exercise class in town and I signed up…for the 5:15am class!  Crazy, I know! But I really wanted to reboot my exercise routine!  (If you live in Bloomington, IL, I’m going to be hanging out at My Lean Body Bootcamp—I’d love for you to join me! I’ve got some $25 gift cards you can pick up from me if you’re interested! Just email me or Facebook me to get them!)

What about you? Want to take advantage of a reboot on this first day of the week/first day of the month? What “new habit” do you want to start or what discipline do you want to recommit to?

  1. After several months of complete upheaval in my life, October is going to be “get my life figured out” month–physically, spiritually, financially, and where I’m going to go with my professional life–writing, or back into nursing.

    I’m making goals and working toward them…and praying praying for God to guide me!

    I agree, Jill–I love Mondays and I love the first of the month! 92 days til the end of the year…by then I hope to have it all figured out (and I hope God isn’t laughing at me for thinking I have a plan! 🙂 I do it all with Him as my Guide! )
