The turn of a new year is a time for introspection, fresh resolutions, and hopes for the future. (Also, massive, brain-splitting hangovers.) As you hatch new plans, know that the mistakes and failures of the last year are not to be regretted: they’re opportunities to learn and try harder.
On today, and all days, I defer to the wise words of Emerson:
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
Thanks so much for reading my little slice of the Internet. It means so much to me. Here’s to a happy and productive 2013.
