Some New Year’s “Words of Wisdom”

So many platitudes – the temptation is to put out some trite (albeit true) sayings and let them become “words of wisdom” for New Year’s – but I’m going to resist and keep it simple…

There are some wonderful rules of life that I think are worth remembering at this time of year. Here are some of my favorites, taken from a variety of “Life Lists”:

Don’t be afraid of your passion
Honor your aspirations
Cherish your dreams
It doesn’t matter who started it (taken from Things we can learn from Children)
Ask “why” until you understand (“)
It’s more fun to color outside the lines (“)
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm (taken from Things we can learn from Dogs)
Thrive on attention and let people touch you (“)
Never pretend to be something you’re not (“)
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory (“)
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them (“)
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it (“)

I’m going to try to remember these simple gems, and hope you find value in them, too!
