Recipe for A Happy New Year

Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.

Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, prayer, meditation, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing—don't do it), and one well-selected resolution.

Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor


HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FELLOW BLOGGERS

Up2,

A Happy New Year to you as well. I think what I like most about your post is the concept of letting months that have gone by remain that way. Granted, the American public has had a rough year. This is coupled with having the same group of non-perfromers. However, the only way you lose your faith is if you surrender it of your own free will. Don't give up, I challange all of us to do our best to be some part of the solution. Best of luck to all.
