Happy New Year! I hope you are looking forward to 2013 as much as I am. I have high hopes for the year to come, but I know that my expectations will only be met if I DO SOMETHING.
In doing something I am bound to make mistakes. Many of them you will see. Some of them you won’t. Regardless, I hope you will join me on the adventure.
In the meantime, here’s a quote from Author Neil Gaiman that felt perfect for the new year…
Here’s the full text…
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
