Quotes and words

The other day I read this on Karen Russell's blog and it really spoke to me. She did not say it, but someone told it to her at a point in her life and she posted it on her blog.

          "Time is inevitably going to pass and 1 year from today you can
find yourself in the exact same spot you're in now,
you can find yourself further away from your goal, 
or you can find yourself closer to your goal-
so where do you want to be a year from now?"

That quote along with this one:

"To get something you never had, you have to do 
something you never did"

really have me thinking. That and of course the start of a new year and a new age! I love the way I feel at the beginning of a new year, it's a whole possibility of new things. However I like most people lose steam. So this year I really want to try and treat each new day as the start of the new year. We tend to fall into the same old rut we were in the year before and the year before and the year before. And then we wonder why things never change. That's where the quote above comes into play, well both of them really. It is also where my one little word for the year is coming in. Okay so I have four little words, but they go together. My word(s) for the year is "New Day, New Year". I am going to make me a little canvas of it(I'll share that when it's done) and hang it close to my work area so that I will see it every day as a reminder to myself that each day can be like the start of a new year. 

You will probably see a lot more quotes on the blog this year. I have a major love for quotes and have a few ideas in mind of things I want to do with them. I will also post more about my words as the year goes on. If you decide to come up with a word for the year, let me know what it is.
