One of the best ways to have a new beginning is to think about what transpired in the year before. Laura Manske modeled one way to take a look back and a look forward. This is what she had to say:
“With the new year on our horizon, we pause to look back, cherishing what was good, and then pause to look forward, cheerleading what we hope will be great. When flipping my calendar, I focus most on gratefulness. I am thankful for experiences that fill my heart and thrill my mind and opportunities to gracefully touch others’ lives—particularly when traveling.” She then goes on to post amazing quotes, pictures and vignettes of 2013. It’s absolutely worth looking at—click on the link below:
Once you’ve viewed Laura’s work, consider how you might begin this year by preparing for what you will do 365 days from now. The Brad Paisley quote: “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one.” might act as your muse. What is the 2014 year you want to write? Think it through and get started today.
