Happy New Year!

I have always approached the new year with mixed feelings. Sometimes I have written down my list of new year resolutions and watched in disbelief as each one eventually went by the wayside. At other times I have limited myself to one simple or one difficult new lifestyle change for the coming year. That too found it’s way into the drink! So you see, I have been good at making attempts at setting goals to accomplish for the coming new year. However, I’ve not been so good at maintaining those goals.    We should not fault ourselves for not keeping the resolutions. If we don’t strive for the goals, we certainly won’t reach any. So, this year I have decided to look for inspiring words that will hopefully open up new opportunities for personal growth. These words are not my own, but I want to share them with you. 

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You are doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you are Doing Something.” -Neil Gaiman.    

“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one”. -Brad Paisley         

Everything about the future is uncertain, but one thing is for sure. God has already planned our tomorrows, we just have to trust Him today. I wish a beautiful tomorrow for each of you.
