Happy New Year!

Hello Optimists,

It's hard to believe that 2011 is upon us, but with its arrival we must think about the good things that are to come in the new year. Though I haven't made any new year's resolutions as of now, I am looking forward to the new things that this year will bring and I am hoping to make it a year that is even better than last and one that will bring even more happiness into my life and the lives of others.

I will make today's post short so you can get back to preparing for tonight's celebrations, but I wanted to leave the last OO post for 2010 with a great quote. Many of you may be attending some parties or fun get-togethers tonight, so I wanted to leave you with a quote that might also serve as a toast for the bubbly that I'm sure will be freely flowing:
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.  ~Oprah Winfrey
Love this! A new year brings another chance for us to set things straight, "get it right", and start (or continue) a journey to make our lives the best they can be. While we can have this mindset at any day of the year, the first day of the new year inspires us to start fresh from a clean slate, giving us that extra little motivation to start things off on the right foot.

So aside from setting that goal to hit the gym more and spend some more time with your friends and/or family, make sure to squeeze in a bit of optimism in your new year's resolutions. Make a promise to yourself to start or continue on a path of positivity and make the effort starting today to live a life of health and happiness through positive thinking!

Cheers to 2011 - may it bring to you good thoughts and another great year of life!

Keep Smiling,

    A great many new, scary, and wonderful things are already happening for me this year. I am ending an old - unhealthy - journey, and stepping out onto the path of a fresh start
