For some, the pomp and circumstance of bringing in the New Year is much ado about nothing, after all, tomorrow is just another day.
But when the whole world comes together to celebrate something in common, despite all our differences, it must mark something special. I am believer in crossing the natural bridges when they appear, so seizing the opportunity to begin again, with a fresh perspective and new hope with the welcoming in of a new year… I’m all for it.
Below are some wonderful words to help set the tone for a fantastic new year. Wishing you all the best in 2018.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” Neil Gaiman
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C. S. Lewis
“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” Brad Paisley
“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” Oprah Winfrey
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Socrates
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier’…” Alfred Lord Tennyson
“Life always offers you a second chance… it’s called tomorrow.” Nicholas Sparks
“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C. S. Lewis
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing the world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” Neil Gaiman
