Try something NEW each day

"Try something new each day" This is a "phrases" out of a quote or proverb but blow me over if I can think of its origin. If anyone has the answer please give me some insight! “Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for your life to begin and start making the most of the moment you are in.” ~ Germany Kent With the old year pressing my face to the window, squeezing every little bit of life out of the days remaining, I am anticipating what might be in store for myself and my family during the year of 2017. Dont tell me none of you are having these feeling yet . . . its quite the normal way of thinking - Will the NEW YEAR be Better than the OLD YEAR?? and . . . . should we just accept the year that has been as part of the experience to make us a lot stronger and wiser to the obsticles that come our way? Which ever way you choose to send off the OLD YEAR and welcome in the NEW YEAR - know this . . . “Great things happen to those who don't stop believing, trying, learning, and being grateful.” ~ Roy T. Bennett I did something quite NEW today - I assisted in mowing the Bowling Green lawns! (with male bodyguards) The BIG Machinery takes a hold of one and if uncontrolled could make a right royal mess of the greens - It was GREAT FUN! I was gardening in another Garden today which left me exhilirated and feeling wonderful! Great Company, Great outdoor exercise, Great Beer, Great Blisters on my hands - Great FUN

"Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for your life to begin and start making the most of the moment you are in.” ~ Germany Kent Yes, yes, YES!!!! I know far too many people who spend their todays wallowing in what went wrong yesterday and dreading what might go wrong tomorrow. I was not content until I determined to make the most of each moment. There's a children's fairy tale ( I've found it as both "The Magic Thread" and "Peter and the Golden Thread") that does a fantastic job of illustrating that particular quote! Trying new things is fun.

Sounds like you had a swell time with that lawn mowing!!! If we expect that the new year will come with disappointments, then we will not suffer from great disappointment when the disappointments come. "Expect to be disappointed and you won't be disappointed." Dr. Abraham A. Low.
