A Fresh Start
“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
As we stand on the threshold of 2011, remember that with the dawning of another year comes a fresh opportunity to change your world and your community.
Each year we are given a second chance to right the wrongs of yesterday, chart a new path toward our future and resolve to be better people in the ‘new’ year, as we silently forget all the grudges from the past and start fresh
Henry Ward Beecher once said, “Every man should be born again on the first day of January”.
Start with a fresh page in 2011.
Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.
As 2010 comes to a close, we extend best wishes to you and yours. We hope you are inspired to lead a beautiful life in 2011, and at the same time make the lives of others beautiful.
Happy New Year!
