My thought for the day …

Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined. – Henry David Thoreau

I’m not particularly philosophical but the start of a new year tends to make me stop in my tracks and wonder where I’m headed.  So often I find myself hell-bent on planning, starting, doing, finishing something but in all honesty, it probably wouldn’t matter one jot if it were never started, let alone completed!

That phrase ‘go confidently in the direction of your dreams‘ has struck a chord for me this morning.

I think I’ll adopt it as my motto for this year.

Almost as soon as I’ve decided that’s a good idea, into my head pops an image of the words on a cushion and off I go again – planning, starting, maybe finishing!  Is it a good idea, to have a little motto for a year?  Maybe …

…this philosophy stuff is exhausting – I’d better go an do a bit of sewing to get over all that thinking!

    I know exactly what you mean! I have also been doing a lot of thinking this morning – it is very hard work! “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams” is kind of the motto that I have tried to live life by – it has served me well. Yvonne x
