Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one. ~ Brad Paisley
This blog is both an ending and a beginning. As 2013 ends, we are primed to look forward into what the future of 2014 might offer us. Let’s begin with a positive spirit of hope. It is today’s theme and a challenge to you throughout the rest of January.
I start with the hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes – at least one a week if not one a day. In order to make mistakes, you have to make new things, try new things, learn, live, push yourself, change yourself or change your world. You have to do things you’ve never done before, and most importantly, you’re doing something.
If you’re scared of doing it, do it anyway. Take the first steps to a new you, a new adventure, a new opportunity to learn new things, new lessons. I challenge you to fearlessly make your mistakes, start today, and continue on throughout the week, the month, the year and forever. I plan to heed my own advice as I move into the New Year.
So that’s my wish for you and me – for all of us. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze. Don’t stop. Don’t worry that it isn’t good enough or it isn’t perfect. Whatever it is – art, love, work, family or life.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day. ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce
