2016 Rounding the Bend

Make the New Year What You WantI know it’s a cliche’ but the years are coming and going faster and faster. This makes it even more important to ‘seize the day.’ Make the most of this New Year. Let it be an opportunity for a fresh start, renewed hope, possibilities, and even new beginnings.

Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.”

Make 2016 a memorable one. Focus on what you REALLY want. I’ve focused on two or three things for a number of years, but it was only until I really focused on one in particular that it made a difference.

To start the New Year, I tried to find quotes I hadn’t shared before, but I couldn’t beat the ones I used last year. So, here they are again. I hope you find them inspiring.
