Andrea Griggs of Females with A Mission just interviewed me on her BlogTalk Show, and we talked about the women who aren’t “feeling” the new year yet. She asked for my tips and suggestions on how to overcome the failures of 2010.

Here are some quotes that summarizes the points that I made during the interview…just because I love quotes.
You have to DECIDE to make it a new year.
“Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.” Thomas Mann
Make some decisions about what you want to happen.
“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Decide who you are going to get rid of this year.
“New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.” James Agate
Sit still to listen to God’s voice.
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. T.S. Eliot
