A dictum for the New Year

A belated happy new year to you all. I trust the holiday period for you has been filled with joy and happiness, fun and festivities, surrounded by your friends and loved ones. As the second week of another new year already zooms past I’m determined to set some achievable goals before Christmas again rushes down upon us. I have given up on dreaming up resolutions which do little but help me feel a failure when I don’t succeed. Instead I try to follow an axiom I’ve had hanging on my wall for some years – its worthy of note not just for a New Year, but for every day.
“This is a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or grown in its light and be of service to others.
But what I do with this day is important, because I have exchanged a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever.
I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it.”
Good luck achieving your goals this year, sticking to your resolutions if you made any, and making something out of every day God gives you.
