A New Year signals a fresh start for many of us, the chance to clear out the old and start again while looking to the future. Forget the cliched resolutions, forget the pressures to be doing certain things. What do you want from the year ahead? Is there anything you want to change, like your perspective, your job, your daily routine? Is there anything you want to focus on more, like family time, a hobby, having more fun? Look at the things you can do in your life, no matter how small, and take back a little control. Here are 16 quotes to empower you to write your New Year and make it your own.

Those are good.

I’ve already had one of the most memorable weekends of my life just a few days into the New Year… I’m not sure if that means that the rest of 2023 is going to suck by comparison, or if it’s just going to keep getting better and better…

#4 reminds me of a thought I had a while back: If you’re not making mistakes, it’s because you aren’t doing anything; and that is probably the biggest mistake of all!

I love most of them but the first one is so simple and really speaks to me. I want to write my year but I am having problems, maybe it will help me. Thanks! Happy New Year!

These are great finds, Caz. I love the all. Excellent quotes for January. I especially like number 4 about making mistakes. When we make mistakes, we learn and can grow. I often knock myself down when things don’t work out as they should. My hubby once told me not to as a mistake made is a lesson learned. I liked that. I still knock myself down though, so I appreciate your reminder with this post.

Wishing you a very happy new year, Caz. I hope it’s kind to you xx

I was doing fine until I got to the quote that said “Start again” several times, and now I have the old Billy Idol song “White Wedding” stuck in my head …

I love all these quotes, Caz, but my favourites are 6, 7 and 9. Thank you for the inspiration and the encouragement to begin the New Year on a positive note. I hope you are well, or as well as you can be. I’ve missed your posts, although I know you haven’t written for a while. I’m looking forward to reading more from you whenever you feel ready.
