The New Year comes with resolutions made which are soon abandoned by many of us within weeks, even days of the start of a brand New Year. Still we try. Perhaps a better route is to consider some realistic expectations and find some “life-nuggets” to nudge us along. So here goes….Quotes for the New Year:
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you’re a vegetarian.
– Dennis Wholey
Never let go of that fiery sadness called desire. – Patti Smith
Don’t let other people tell you what you want. – Pat Riley
“Why,” a seventy-six-year-old woman was asked, “are you seeking therapy at your age?” Reflecting on both her losses and her hopes, she answered, “Doctor, all I’ve got left is my future.”

Have a Grand, Safe and Prosperous New Year!
