When is the best time to start something?

We all have goals that we want to achieve, whether it is breaking old, negative patterns or implementing new, positive habits to our daily lives.

How often do we hear ourselves or others proclaim on the weekend, “I’ll start on Monday,” or “I’ll start on the first of the month.”

But how about Wednesday?  Why not start on a day when we’ve had the beginning of a week to plan and prepare and the remainder of a week to assess and reframe, if needed.

There’s so much pressure placed on a Monday.  Some hate Mondays. Some welcome them and think of them as a fresh start.

This week, I’m starting again on Wednesday. Maybe it’s because I’ve fallen short on Monday and Tuesday – yes, that’s a fact.  Yet it’s really because I don’t want to wait for next Monday and Wednesday is a great half-way point.  It’s filled with hope.  It’s closer to the weekend. It means that the beginning of the week is behind us.

Join me in starting fresh tomorrow.  My reality is that I change when I mentally let go and stop trying so hard.  When I don’t make it my central focus and get hung up on whatever it is. It’s when my conscious takes a vacation and my subconscious kicks in. It’s when one evening I look back on a day, a week or a month and realize, “Wow, I made it happen.”

But, for today, I want to start again tomorrow.  How about you?
