New Year’s Bountiful Blessing

And now let us welcome the New Year.  Full of things that have never been.  – Rainer Maria Rilke

“…but time is the New Year’s bountiful blessing:  three hundred sixty-five bright mornings and starlit evenings; fifty-two promising weeks; twelve transformative months full of beautiful possibilities; and four splendid seasons.  A simply abundant year to be savored.”  -Sarah Ban Breathnach

Happy New Year’s everyone!

  1. I like this view of the world and the poem:

    Write it on your heart
    that every day is the best day in the year.
    He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
    who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

    Finish every 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, with too high a spirit
    to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

    This new day is too dear,
    with its hopes and invitations,
    to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
