Life I am the new year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am you opportunity to practice
what you have learned about life
during the last twelve months.
All you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out
with more determination.
All the good that you tried for
and didn’t achieve
is mine to grant
when you have few conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn’t dare do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have —
these slumber lightly
waiting to be awakened
by the touch of a strong purpose
I am your opportunity
to renew you allegiance to Him who said,
‘behold I make all things new.’
I am the new year.
January 3rd - opportunities
And now let us welcome the New Year, full of things that have never been.
We make choices every day — what to eat, how to spend the day, what to think. Yet sometimes we neglect the incredible potential that is ours. Our options seem to be limited by people or circumstances. But we all have control of our attitude, and that is what defines us.
Attitude matters. How you rebound from a setback speaks volumes about who you are. Your attitude makes all the difference.
Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending.
Opportunities come in all sizes and shapes, they come when we least expect them. Some come in the form of problems or hard work. We now have 363 days left of 2019 to make it the make it the best year ever.
I believe life is full of opportunities. Opportunities are what will make our year. Recognizing opportunities and responding to them, seeing opportunities and seizing them.
A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.
