Happy New Year Quotes from Quote Garden.com

If you're feeling in quite a rut as I do on occasion, now is the time to think back to all the people who had a worse year than you (Tiger Woods, Jon Gosselin...etc.) and not worry too much about resolutions. I always hate the month of January mostly because everyone is at the gym for their NYR (New Year's Resolution) which will last until February or March if they are ambitious. I'd say start your "resolution" in February so you come out a month later. I mean seriously, who wants to deal with a dieter when there are still left overs, college bowl games, and the Super Bowl coming up (keeping fingers crossed for the Steelers to slip in).

Anyway, before you slip into a champagne induced hangover here are a few quotes for thought and mostly a few laughs.

I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New
Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve,
smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop
abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also
dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but
really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment,
in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if
resolutions began generally on January the second.

~Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.

~Ellen Goodman

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ~Benjamin Franklin

Cheers to 2010!
