1. Begin the new year with a prayer.
“We meet today to thank Thee for the era done and Thee for the opening one.”
John Greenleaf Whittier
2. Have faith in your potential.
“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.”
3. Stay positive.
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
4. Let go of past failures.
“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.”
5. Move forward with faith.
“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
Happy New Year, Writer Friends!
