Some New Year’s Wisdom

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Ralph Waldo Emerson

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 your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.
Neil Gaiman

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
Oprah Winfrey

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
Hal Borland

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.
Ben Franklin

Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.
Jonathan Edwards

Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
Helen Keller

Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

And suns grow meek, and the meek suns grow brief, and the year smiles as it draws near its death.
William C. Bryant

Good parties create a temporary youthfulness.
Mason Cooley

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Revelation 21:4
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Thank you, God, for another day – another year perhaps – another chance to know You to love You and to serve You better. Have a happy and blessed New Year, everyone!

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 10, 16 and 23. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
