Rules of Life... such good advice! :-)

"The values by which we are to survive are not rules for just and unjust conduct, but are those deeper illuminations in whose light justice and injustice, good and evil, means and ends are seen in fearful sharpness of outline." ~Jacob Bronowski

A New Year is a Fresh Start

"A New Year represents a Fresh Start.  It is where the slate from the previous year is wiped clean of mistakes and trials; leaving only the lessons.  Each new year is full of new beginnings." ~ME
We should take advantage of every opportunity to make every day a fresh start.  Resolve to make each day the beginning of a new year, a new morning, a new adventure... believing there are infinite possibilities.   
Look at a New Year as wiping the slate clean and taking us back to zero where we can be filled up again with faith, hope and love... enough for everyone we meet throughout the year.
Another fresh new year is here...
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest...
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
~William Arthur Ward
