130 New Year Quotes To Get You Excited!
“New day – new start; new you, New Year!ï¿½ Itï¿½s never too late to start anew, merely throw out the old and bring in the new. “
– Jean Renee Porter, A New Day
Here are some of the best New Year Quotes we could find! These are ideal to read, absorb and send to family and friends to encourage them in year ahead. We all need to take a moment in time to look back and look ahead – savour what’s happened and dream about what could be – don’t we? New Year’s Day is the best day of the year to do all that. We all need some special words of wisdom for our celebrations – to give them meaning and substance. As the old saying goes -> ‘Out with the Old and In with the New!’
New Year is a time for renewal. Time to re-write our goals and resolutions… We need to set our targets; our ‘give up’ AND our ‘go up’ goals. Let’s cultivate an attitude of expectancy and positivity at this special time. You, me and all those we love are one year older and let’s all hope – perhaps we’re a little wiser! So, let’s all be thankful for our experiences, blessings and make sure we are expectant of what’s ‘even better, still to come!’ It’s GOOD to celebrate being alive, having made it through to another year… (just remember that some people didn’t). I don’t know about you – but I’m really excited about the year ahead. Are you? Think of the opportunities and possibilities that come with a whole brand new year. Where will you be next year and in the year’s ahead…?
Be blessed by these Inspirational New Year’s Quotes and we wish all our readers a Very Happy and Prosperous and Healthy New Year!
