New Year’s Revolutions

December 27, 2010

I have never made New Year’s resolutions, probably because I make and reaffirm my life choices whenever needed, generally when I wander off the path and feel lost which happens often enough that I have a New Year monthly. I like most other holidays, but I don’t really get the New Year thing… like if you were going to make changes why didn’t you already? Make a change! Create an inner revolution! Even in July!

Okay, that’s the grump in me talking. The rest of me perfectly understands the power of a new calendar, a new year, a new start and how good that can feel. I tend to find that lovely feeling in the same way that Anne of Green Gables said, “Marilla, isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”

I decided, instead of coming here to talk about my New Year’s resolutions and what a revolution I’m about to have, I’d post a few inspirational quotes I love, and then open this up to you and the quotes, poems, or songs that inspire you to make positive changes in your life. Please share—there’s nothing quite like a good quote.
