Finally the first day of the year has come upon us!

Consider today to be a new beginning. The start of your best year yet. 366 (as it is leap year!) days of happiness and love and joy. Put all fears, doubts, and sadness behind you and embrace the beauty and joy of life everyday.

Today is your day. And so is every other day from here on out.

So, as a positive start to this new year...

Journal Prompt #1
On the very first page of your journal in the very center of the page, write a declaration for yourself. Your declaration should promote all the ideas and actions you wish to embrace in the coming year.

Radiate joy. Determine your own happiness. See God's grace in everyday. Find beauty in all things. Let your creativity take control. Shower others with random acts of kindness. Follow your heart.

Those are just a few examples. Your declaration can be as long or as short as you wish and can include absolutely anything, no matter how insane it may seem. After you write your declaration, you may decorate the page around it if you like.

Now you have your declaration for the coming year. Read it often. Remember it. Take it to heart. If you follow your own declaration, you will be well on your way to having your best year yet.

If you'd like to, comment here to share your own declarations with the rest of the community!

And to encourage and inspire you on the day of your new beginning, here are some quotes to reflect on. If you see one that you really like, write it in your journal or on a post-it or note card to place somewhere you will look very often. Remember that positive thinking is the first step to accomplishing all things.

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth... not going all the way and not starting. - Buddha

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. - Lao Tzu

From small beginnings come great things.

He who chooses the beginning of the road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determines the end. - Harry Emerson Fosdick

Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morn is the world made new. - Sarah Chauncey Woolsey

Now I encourage you to make your own posts (get ideas from the info page), continue coming back daily to receive and share life-changing ideas, and embrace all things life gives to you!

Trust in God and never let anyone walk away feeling unloved. Laugh at life when times are good or bad. Be the change you want to see in the world. Take nothing for granted. Don't judge happiness through someone else's eyes.
