Learn Something New Every Day!

Happy New Year!

Eventually, I expect we will all be making (and hopefully keeping) some new year’s resolutions.  But for the moment, let’s just treasure the gift of the new year spread before us.  It is a chance to start over, to embrace the change that will come whether we want it or not.  Approach what lies ahead with hope, expectation and plenty of gratitude, and 2015 will become the treasured gift it appears to be at this moment.  ENJOY!

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”   Ralph Waldo Emerson

 “New Year’s Day.  A fresh start.  A new chapter in life waiting to be written.  New questions to be asked, embraced and loved.  Answers to be discovered and then live in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand.  Only dreams give birth change.”   Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Your success and happiness lies in you.  Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.”   Helen Keller

“And now we welcome the new year.  Full of things that have never been.”    Rainer Maria Rilke

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”    Benjamin Franklin

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”  Oprah Winfrey

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.'”  Alfred Lord Tennyson

  1. The graphic is loaded with fitting words for which we should aim. Oprah’s and Rilke’s quote were my favs. Happy New Year, Patti!

  2. Happy New Year, Patti! I also like Oprah’s quote the best…a fresh start to be better than ever!

    • Happy New Year, thanks for stopping by. Like you and Frank, Oprah’s quote is one of my favorites as well. I also like Helen Keller’s sense that we are in charge of our happiness. Not always an easy task.

  3. I like the first quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Happy New Year (a few days late). 🙂
