  When you come to the edge of all the light you have and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen to you: Either there will be something solid for you to stand on, or, you will be taught how to fly.

  REPRINTS

  JANUARY 1

  Today I have a fresh start. I choose to begin letting go of unhealthy thoughts, feelings and attitudes that have stifled my growth. Today I choose to think new thoughts, to look at new values and to find new ways of expressing my God-given gifts. I now choose to deepen my understanding of others and myself. I will look at my relationships with family and my friends in a new light. I choose to have vital, healthy interactions with others. I truly welcome this new day, this new year and this new me. I welcome the wonderful possibilities open to me.

  Rokelle Lerner

  Be like a sponge when it comes to each new experience. If you want to be able to express it well, you must first be able to absorb it well.

  Jim Rohn

  When I grew up, I learned not to rock the boat; asserting my own opinions and desires could get me in trouble. Sometimes I carry this over in my parenting; I don’t take a stand or set limits. When my children push or threaten to get angry, the fear I felt as a child comes up and my reaction is to placate them and keep the peace. This is not healthy. I need to feel those fears I felt as a child along with the sense of helplessness that overwhelmed me. I need to separatemyself as a child from myself as an adult. I also need to separate my inner child from the child I am raising.

  Tian Dayton

  Loving a child doesn’t mean giving in to all his whims; to love him is to bring out the best in him, to teach him to love what is difficult.

  Nadia Boulanger

  When I was a teen, my grandmother taught me how to cross-stitch. I was apprehensive at first, sure that my disability would interfere. It always did. My grandmother reassured me that I could do simple patterns at my own pace. There were curses; there were smiles. There were times I quit and times I began again. But when I completed my first pattern I realized the mistakes and curses were twined with perfect stitches and smiles to create something brand new. Just like life.

  It’s a lesson I re-learn every time I thread a needle.

  Christyna Hunter

  Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.

  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  Spend a few minutes, a few hours, or an entire day unconcerned about what others will think, or what’s in it for you, or whether something offends you or not.

  Feel the freedom, delight in the ability to accomplish, and explore possibilities that you may never before have even known about.

  Once you decide to let go of your ego, it’s a very simple thing to do. And it will truly change your world for the better.

  Brahma Kumaris

  World Spiritual University

  Detachment is being close to what you most want to be free from and using it to make you grow.

  Brahma Kumaris

  Just for today, I will not hate.

  Just for today, I will forgive the one who hurt me. I will remember that I am a child of God, and I will take the child out to play.

  Just for today I will ask God to forgive me, and just for today, I will let Him.

  Jaye Lewis

  Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

  Suzanne Somers

  Within every human being there is an inherent sense of dignity and self-respect. Circumstances in life might cause it to be buried under layers of grime but sooner or later, this sense of dignity pushes its way up for recognition and one day breaks through the surface. That’s the day a person becomes aware that “I am too good for this.” At that moment, the miracle of recovery can begin.

  Abraham J. Twerski

  The best solution for little problems is to help people with big problems.

  Rabbi Kalman Packouz

  JANUARY 7

  Embrace life and all it has to offer, then you can live with an appreciation for all it’s worth. When you embrace life there is a sense of satisfaction and contentment that comes over you, helping you to live each moment with acceptance and gratitude. Not always longing to be someplace else or wishing for something different. Instead you are taking what comes your way and turning it into the best it can be. You can live with a purpose, enjoying every moment, and with a thankfulness that stirs in you a deeper commitment to embrace life even more.

  Peggy Reeves

  There’s only us, there’s only this, forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way, no day but today.

  Jonathan Larson

  When I was alone and hope seemed so far away, I met a soul who changed my life-myself. I began to learn, to love, to be responsible for my future and to accept that the past cannot be changed.

  Rather than walk without direction, lost inside my tormented mind, I learn and accept that if I feel pain, I can feel joy as well. I can enjoy the present and cherish a sunset, a lake, a tear, a smile, a friend.

  Isa Traverso-Burger

  I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

  The more I recognize abundance
as being meant for me, the more it will be true. An unconscious attitude of limitation and scarcity will find its way into my life if I allow it to. When I can see the prosperity in this world as a boundless supply, one in which I partake along with others, I open the channels for it to enter into my life. I will think positively about other people’s prosperity, knowing that what I believe to be true for someone else, I also believe to be true for me. I accept the abundance in my life.

  Tian Dayton

  The moon belongs to everyone; the best things in life are free.

  Dreams are surprisingly durable. Though forgotten, they will lie like dry seeds buried in desert sands, waiting. A dream may appear fragile and lifeless, but inside the parched husk waits lush creative potential. We sometimes forget these old dreams of ours, but they do not forget us. Spring rains arrive at last, following the hard years of drought, and our “dead” dreams sprout most unexpectedly. We are filled with delight to see their long-forgotten shape, to breathe their fragrance again, and we wonder at our carelessness in forgetting. Today, I will visit my garden of forgotten dreams . . and bring a watering can.

  Rhonda Brunea

  All our dreams can come true . . . if we have the courage to pursue them.

  Walt Disney

  The harsh winter winds call attention to themselves, and I am mindful of all the unpleasant aspects of the unfriendliest of seasons. Some memories of my unhappy childhood still linger within me, blowing icy blasts through my soul. I am aware of these, just as I am aware of the chill in the world around me. There is no need to struggle against these elements. I am as unique and important to life’s scheme as each snowflake. I have a new and abiding warmth in my soul as I patiently await the coming of spring with its warmth, sunshine and fresh breezes to rejuvenateme.

  Rokelle Lerner

  What life means to us is determined not so much by what happens to us as by our reaction to what happens.
