Fresh perspective for a fresh start


 

Amid the familiar traditions of ringing in the New Year — fireworks, friends, midnight countdowns — comes the silent little pep talk we give ourselves as we contemplate our future: “This will be a banner year,” we vow. “I’ll change, I’ll chase that dream, I won’t get trapped in the same old patterns. This will be my best year yet.”

And it can be — especially when you have beliefs in yourself and the world that inspire and motivate.

As our year-end thank-you to you, loyal readers, we’ve gathered a dozen of the quotes that inspire us most and added a little commentary that we hope will provide you with helpful perspectives on your fresh start. They are yours to pin, print, or share — and most of all believe.

See you in the New Year!
