While trying to find some inspiration for my weekly blog post, I turned to lists of the best New Year’s quotes. I have to admit that I found some pretty good ones. Obviously, they can take us in a million different directions. It’s best just to pick a couple themes or resolutions that work best for you.
One of my favorites is a quote by Neil Gaiman. He said “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you’re 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.”
When I read this quote, it reminds me of the power of one person. The ability of each one of us to change the world. We can all help many by helping one and make the world a better place by doing good. It’s not about expecting or hoping or wishing. It’s about doing. Believe in your ability to do good.
