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.
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!
