Minnesota Morning: Happy New Year 2012 Edition

Dear 2012, please be kind to my friends. Let them find & keep the hope, peace and love they are looking for. Keep them healthy and give them the strength they need on the bad days and give them time to celebrate the good days.

We get more time this year as 2012 is a Leap Year so we have 366 Days | 8,784 Hours | 527,040 Minutes | 31,622,400 Seconds

13.5 hours in and I do not (yet) feel I am behind. Well… maybe a little. I had hoped to get more done the past two weeks and will take some of the advice I have below.

While I am not one to make resolutions I try to find a few things that remind me of the mood I start a year with and what I will likely need for the year.

Two new quotes:

“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

"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A few (of the many) that I always have around:

Lukewarm won't do. Halfhearted holding back, well-enough getting by? Not here. – Rumi

The cavalry ain’t coming. You’ve got to do this yourself. - Chris Gardner

Be kind to your shadow. - Rebecca Lawless

Hark, now hear the sailors cry, Smell the sea and feel the sky, Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic - Van Morrison

Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it. - Mark Twain

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me. - Kermit the Frog

These 2 words:

Full Throttle

I saw this on Facebook the other day:

And Now Is Right On Time

This is the song I am going with:


Best Wishes and Happy New Year
