New Year’s morning is the freshest of all mornings, don’t you agree?  I also think there’s something special about New Year’s Eve morn, as there’s an excitement in the air that something–the simple but radical act of turning a page–is about to happen.

To get you inspired for that act, here are some inspiring New Year’s quotes (click here for more):

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going
on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a
new year and another chance for us to get it right.” –Oprah Winfrey

“Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.” –Brooke Atkinson

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
–T.S. Eliot

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
