Blogging Insights NF — #65 New Year, New Slate


” Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one!” — Brad Paisley.


A fresh start, a new beginning; these are good any time. You don’t need a particular date for them. In fact, you don’t even need the calendar.

Being the beginning of a new calendar year, I know fresh starts are on everyone’s minds. This is as good a time as any to ditch that bad habit, initiate a good routine, begin a new book : whatever floats your boat.

You can do this any time you want. Personally, I prescribe to the following theory : ” Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

What do you think? I would love to know.

  1. Here’s a quote from novelist Karen Joy Fowler that seems apropos at this point, somehow:
    ““Sylvia thought how all parents wanted an impossible life for their children — happy beginning, happy middle, happy ending. No plot of any kind. What uninteresting people would result if parents got their way.” — Karen Joy Fowler
    Meaning, in life, if you try too hard, and are successful, it’ll be both boring and tiring.

  2. Exactly! I’ve never really been one for starting a new life only during the new year. It’s _today_ we should focus on. That’s where we have the most power. Start today and keep things going, and we’ll have a nice life someday. Theoretically. I’m still working on living my best day every day.
