Recipe For A Happy New Year

Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are
thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate.

Cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all
specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these
months are freed from all the past. Have them fresh and clean as
when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not
attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons
spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.

Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work
(some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the
rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this
out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do
it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution. Put in
about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of
folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.
