A thought for your day, with my good wishes …
Happy New Year, everyone, and thank you as always for turning to me here, on Linkedin, on Instagram, at webinars and in person for professional development, travel insights and more. I never take this wonderful international community for granted, and look forward to seeing many of you again (or for the first time!) in 2023.
For today’s inspirational quote, I take you back to 2018, and to Neil Gaiman’s New Year Wishes. It speaks to me, as I hope it does to you.
Be kind to yourself in the year ahead.
Remember to forgive yourself, and to forgive others.
It’s too easy to be outraged these days, so much harder to change things,
to reach out, to understand.
Try to make your time matter:
minutes and hours and days and weeks can blow away like dead leaves,
with nothing to show but time you spent not quite ever doing things,
or time you spent waiting to begin.
Meet new people and talk to them.
Make new things and show them to people who might enjoy them.
Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.
– Neil Gaiman
