New Year Resolutions

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
I'm not making any New Year resolutions for 2013. No regrets looking back on "the yesterdays".  This year I'll start each day focused on that day. I'll strive to be kinder. I'll strive to smile at strangers more often and smile more at home, too. I'll make a point to find joy in every day life, not just special occasions. I'll strive to begin each day with a high spirit and end it with a grateful heart. I'll strive, each day, to leave the world a better place than it was when I woke up each morning.

I wish you all a happy 2013!
