Sharing Hope in the Face of Adversity — One Piece at a Time

Making New Years Resolutions and Winning

Posted by Second Chance to Live on January 7, 2013

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. If some one else has not already welcomed you to 2013, let me be the first to say Happy New Year.

With the start of a new year I hear people asking one another a similar question, “What is your New Years resolution?”As I hear this question being asked, I reflect upon the answer I would give if I was asked, “What is your New Years resolution?”

As I reflect upon the answer that I would give, several thoughts and quotes come to mind. These thoughts and quotes remind me that I can restart my day over at any time. These thoughts and quotes help me to look at my circumstances and experiences in a different light.

These thoughts and quotes give me focus as I work on my goals. These thoughts and quotes motivate me to get up when I fall down.These thoughts and quotes empower me to see myself as winning. These thoughts and quotes inspire me with hope.

As you read these thoughts and quotes, may you also be encouraged, motivated, empowered and inspired by hope if you are asked, “What is your New Years Resolution?”

In life I need to remember that there is no such thing as a happy victim.

Happiness is an inside job. When I look out side of myself — for happiness — I set myself up to be disappointed. I am responsible for my own happiness.
