| 10 Quotes to Start Your New Year and Renew Your Mind |

Making New Years Resolutions or actually Goals for Your Life would be a better way to describe it.  Resolutions seem to slither out of one’s daily routines a couple months into the new year, however, make them actual Life Goals.  Display them in your home where you see the constant reminder of where you want to be and where you are going.

Each year my husband and I discuss our goals for the year and talk about writing them down, however, we never seem to get there.  I don’t honestly think that is the reason that we haven’t accomplished all our goals yet but it doesn’t help us out any now does it?!

Life is hard, even as a Christian where you are supposed to leave all your worries up to the Lord above.  Your life depends on you as well as your faith in God to provide and help you.  We must not only seek Him in all we do, however, continue to live life to our best ability when we do not hear from God.  Reading the Word daily and keeping a positive mindset will help.

So this brings me to a some positive thoughts that I have come across lately.  I have always loved quotes, ever since I was a little girl.  I tend to over-analyze quite a bit and get lost in my head so quotes help keep my thoughts simple.  There is such a simplicity to a short positive statement or a small scripture.  It can help to realign your life or your day when the path is an uphill curve.  Parenting can cause a lot of ups and downs throughout your day, week, month, year so sometimes it is nice to read through some positive quotes from successful people.  Here are a few quote* including a couple scriptures that get me through my day.
