As Seen On

In pondering what to write about today, I searched “best quotes for the new year”  I found things like:

“You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book.  Write a good one.” – Brad Paisley

I love a good quote, but had to roll my eyes at that one.

The quote I landed on, the one I’m going to keep my eyes on as I move through 2017 is from good ‘ole Albert:

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” – Albert Einstein

It speaks to everything I want for my life and for yours, as well:

  • Purpose from moving on from yesterday with new wisdom and knowledge.
  • Peace from the presence of living for today.
  • Faith in the belief that tomorrow can shine brighter, full of possibility.

I’m keeping my vision for 2017 that simple.  We’ve all made the lists of resolutions, set big goals, and dreamed up that perfect version of ourselves – 20 pounds lighter, 10 years younger, and winning the lottery.  Haha.  And the disappointment that comes when it doesn’t work out feels shitty.  Always pining after something that maybe we’re not actually willing to put in the time and effort to have (right now).  

This time around, I’m shooting for the things I’m really, truly ready to work for: peace and presence.  For me, that means more meditation, getting outside, and journaling.  And I have a hunch that if I put these things first, lots of other things I want will fall into place, too.    

I’m curious… if you put aside what you think you “should” want as you move into a new year, and get real about what you’re actually willing to make some changes for, what you truly desire, what are you left with?    

Comment below, or shoot me an email.  It would make my day to hear from you. 🙂  

Here’s to a simple, Happy New Year,
