Here we go again


Every day is the first day of the rest of your life. Any day could be the day when everything changes. Any day might be the one on which a new idea, an unexpected opportunity or a chance meeting makes your dreams come true.

So why is the first day of January extra special?

For me, it’s the day when I look back over the previous year, remind myself of the good things that happened, and decide that the not-so-good things were really only minor disappointments and problems that can now be forgotten. It’s the day I stop feeling I’ve failed because I haven’t ticked off every item on my to-do list. I take great pleasure in ripping it up and writing a smaller, more manageable one. It’s the day I open up my new diary and flick through all those lovely, blank pages.

In 2016 there are 366 days of new possibilities!

Ready, steady, go!

Happy New Year!

Happy new year!

I think it helps that others see 1st January as a fresh start too, so it's easier to believe we can change things if we really want to and are prepared to put in some effort.

I love a brand new year as well, and we look forward to how it's going to be don't we? Best Wishes for the brand new 2016, Linda.

Happy New Year, Linda. I agree that each time a new year rolls around is a good time to reflect and look forwards.
