January 2020, A new year, a new decade, a new month, and more quotes….


It’s a new month, a new year, a new decade, regardless of what happened in 2019, I am ready to embrace 2020 with joy and gratitude.

My approach for this amazing year is simply to live one day at a time and enjoy each moment.  If my plans don’t turn out the way I anticipated, I will learn, grow, and move on.

I came across these quotes, which I think can inspire me to live a more fulfilling life.  I hope they will inspire you as well.

A New Year has tiptoed in.  Let’s go forward to meet it.  Anusha Atukorala

Approach the new year with the resolve to find the opportunities hidden in each new day.  Michael Josephson.

Whatever we are planning for this new year, it’s up to us to take action and make it happen.  Things will do fall into place if we do our part.

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.  Melody Beattie

Your success and happiness lie in you.  Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” Helen Keller

If you have been following my blog you know every year, I chose 2 words to help me focus.  My words for this year are: Persevere and Believe.  What the new year brings you to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year Vern McLellan.  This quote makes me realize if I persevere and believe, I will see the result. My success will not come on its own, I have to work hard, believe, and my dreams will turn into my reality.

I will continue to be grateful and enjoy the simple things that life has to offer. Together let’s make 2020 the best year ever and live by this quote of Ralph Waldo: Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction. Germany Kent

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”. C.S. Lewis

Happy and Blessed New Year, Marjie


  1. Lovely images. the flower with the red seeds(sorry I don’t know what it`s called) is so pretty, reminds me of a coffee plantation I visited once while on vacation, it was the first time I realized that coffee beans are red when ripe(silly me I only knew coffee from shops)

  2. I love that one of your new words is believe. I think it’s so important for people to believe that they can achieve their goals. Great post!

  3. I believe this decade will give us so many great and good experiences. I am trusting on that positive note. Here’s to a very happy Decade. 🙂
