Happy New Year from Walt Disney World! Another day, a new year. I love New Years because it gives a renewed sense of hope and excitement for all that we have to look forward to in the coming 365 days. Today I would like to share with you all some of my favorite inspirational quotes regarding the New Year. Be sure to stick around for the end of the post for a New Years-themed artwork freebie and a tasty prosecco cocktail recipe!
“One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: to rise above the little things.”
“Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.”
–Peggy Toney Horton
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
“The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege.”
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
