Love these words...

Words to live by in the New Year......




This year, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love and then speak it again.



My friend Somer from LOVE TO BREATHE posted this toast from a recent book club of hers and I loved the message. I decided to repost it as a New Year resolution or a way to live the new best year of your life or what have you for the new year! 


Happy New Year to all!!
 May 2011 be the best yet!
