Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

“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.”
― Neil Gaiman
“The great miraculous bell of translucent ice is suspended in mid-air.
It rings to announce endings and beginnings.
And it rings because there is fresh promise and wonder in the skies.
Its clear tones resound in the placid silence of the winter day,
and echo long into the silver-blue serenity of night.
The bell can only be seen at the turning of the year,
when the days wind down into nothing, and get ready to march out again.
When you hear the bell, you feel a tug at your heart.
It is your immortal inspiration.”
― Vera Nazarian
“In the New Year, dream something that you have never dreamed!”
