Okay, I promise not to bore you all with my favourite quotes, but I am writing my mottoes for the year.
These slogans or mottoes tend to be quotes or sayings symbolizing what it is that I wish to be/do/want from the new year.
They help me focus.
I usually write them in my daytimer/diary, as little reminders.
I often share them with others, children included. It is fascinating to hear their thoughts on my mottoes and to hear of their own possible mottoes.
So, this is another quote, that I am considering –
“Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.” ~Pope John XXIII
