What amazing gifts the new year brings!
An entire year's worth of wonderful opportunities...
given to us one sunrise at a time.
Many of the moments ahead will be marvelously disguised as ordinary days, but each one of us has the chance to make something extraordinary out of them.
Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life.
The secret of success is... in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.Have pages on understanding and tales of overcoming hardships.
Fill your story with enthusiasm, adventure, learning,
And make each chapter reflect time doing these things: Follow your dreams.
Work hard.Be kind.
Do what you can to make the door open on a day that is filled with inspiration in some special way.
Remember: Goodness will be rewarded.Smiles will pay you back.Have fun.
Find strength. Be truthful.Have faith.
Don't focus on anything you lack.
Realize that people are the treasures in life,
and happiness is the real wealth
Have a diary that describes how you're doing your best,
and the rest will take care of itself.
