New Year Reflection

Monday, December 31, 2012

I found this quotation the other day. As is my usual habit, I will initially scan what I read, and then peruse it more thoroughly . As I read, something struck deep within me. We celebrate the New Year as a time of new beginnings. Why? What is it about one day of 365 that is different? It is a good thing, I believe, to celebrate the good things past, forget, the mistakes,
learn the lessons we need, and focus on the present moment, and what we would like our future to be.
New Year's provides us with just that opportunity. We are the authors of our lives and what a wonderful thing that is! How exciting to create ourselves each and every moment!
Happy New Year to all!

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.

    Happy New year!

I saw a quote somewhere on Facebook today that said something like you said. You are being given a 365 page blank book. Make every page a good one!
