The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.

Positive places

There is a lot of negativity in the world. Some of it is important and worth considering, but most of it is not.

As much as you can, focus your attention on life’s positive, empowering and inspiring aspects. Don’t completely ignore the negative factors, but don’t allow them to dominate your awareness either.

Remind yourself to seek out and spend time in situations and endeavors where your efforts can bring positive value. Avoid wasting time fighting bitter fights that don’t really matter anyway.

It can be easy to get distracted by the clashing noise of negativity. Usually, though, you have a better option.

When you have a choice, choose to put yourself in situations where you can move life forward. Be where you can be inspired, encouraged, enthusiastic and effective.

Live your moments in positive places, with positive people, doing things that make a positive difference. Your life is unique and precious, so choose as often as you can to live it in those positive places.
