Happy New Year! I hope you had safe and fun celebrations last night, whether they were low-key or you find yourself still in bed today from last night’s festivities.
I don’t know what 2014 will hold, but I’m hoping for new things, growth, achievement and adventure. I wish for happiness and health for family and friends.
I’m never very good at resolutions – my hope for this year is that I set goals for the things I really want and make the plans to achieve them. I’m already making plans for 2014 with this delightfully charming Kate Spade planner – shouldn’t be hard to cross things off my to-do list when they are in this lovely agenda!
I came across this quote today from the always eloquent Neil Gaiman and wanted to share:
“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.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
Best wishes for 2014!
