A Happy New Years

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.  ~Ellen Goodman

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
~Edgar Guest

great post! I love this idea..I dont like focusing on resolutions and last years forggoten or failed ones, I never have done this is my life. This is the first year though that I really feel the "urge" to put myself first in alot of ways, and to not feel guilty about making sure some of my needs and desires are taken care of.

Great quotes! I'm a positive person so I like the idea of focusing on the "potential."
Happy New Year!
