Motivation Monday.. and a Special New Year’s Wish For You


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream ~ C.S. Lewis

In 2012 I started posting a motivational or mindful quote each Monday and today being Monday, Lewis’ quote is one that also feels appropriate for the start of a New Year.

New Year’s Eve is traditionally a time for new resolutions and plans. We are drawn to the possibility of a fresh start, a chance to leave the troubles of the past year behind and move forward into a brighter future. Last year (and the year before it) some of us decided to choose three words to be our guide for what we intend to focus on in the coming year.  I haven’t quite decided on my three words yet, but reading today’s quote, I think one of them shall be “dreams”.

So, as we drop this year, with all its past sadness and loss, joys and triumphs, into the past, I hope that you will take the words of Thoreau with you as you venture into a new year of dreams and possibilities.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. ~  Henry David Thoreau

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and peace-filled New Year xxx
