Celebrate what you want to see more of.
A new year is unfolding ... like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within.
For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.
Edith Lovejoy Pierce
We spend January (1) walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives, not looking for flaws but for potential.""
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
Why shed tears on failures long forgotten when hope looms on the horizon?
In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want.
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
The old year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!
Edward Payson Powell
I don’t really have a New Year’s resolution to go on a diet or anything like that. I am who I am, and I don’t want to be somebody else.
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
If it didn’t Bring you Joy,
Just Leave it Behind.
Let’s Ring in the New Year
With Good Things in Mind.
Let Every Bad Memory Go
That Brought Heartache and Pain.
And let’s Turn a New Leaf
With the Smell of New Rain.
Let’s Forget Past Mistakes
Making Amends for This Year.
Sending You These Greetings
To Bring you Hope and Cheer
Happy New Year!
