You’re probably expecting advice on how to crush your goals or stick to New Year’s resolutions. Well, you won’t get that from me — there are enough people out there professing to be experts in this matter. Some will even offer you a master class or private Facebook coaching. Not me. Nope, instead, I offer you seven inspirational quotes on renewal.
Not because it is New Year’s Eve, but because I am silently (no, fervently!) hoping 2020 will be a better year for many of us. As the 80’s Howard Jones song goes, things can only get better!
Yes, I’m happy to say that after an extended rough patch where life kept throwing a series of curveballs my way (and to various family members), things are looking much brighter.
Side note: Early last year, I had an iTovi scan and discovered that there’s a really good essential oil blend to help flush out negative vibes–if you need more info, please reach out to me over on Facebook or Instagram.
Ok, now on to the inspirational quotes. I hope at least one of these will resonate with you. If not, please share in the comments your favorite quote about renewal.
Inspirational Quotes on Renewal
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.”
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
“As wave is driven by wave
And each, pursued, pursues the wave ahead,
So time flies on and follows, flies, and follows,
Always, for ever and new. What was before
Is left behind; what never was is now;
And every passing moment is renewed.” ― Ovid, Metamorphoses
“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
“Passion is a far better prioritizer than any organization system. Soul refreshment comes from SEEING glory – not getting stuff done.”
― Leland Ryken, Redeeming the Time: A Christian Approach to Work and Leisure
“The greatest remedy in the world is change; and change implies the passing from the old to the new. It is also the only path that leads from the lesser to the greater, from the dream to the reality, from the wish to the heart’s desire fulfilled. It is change that brings us everything we want. It is the opposite of change that holds us back from that which we want. But change is not always external. Real change, or rather the cause of all change, is always internal. It is the change in the within that first produces the change in the without. To go from place to place is not a change unless it produces a change of mind—a renewal of mind. It is the change of mind that is the change desired. It is the renewal of mind that produces better health, more happiness, greater power, the increase of life, and the consequent increase of all that is good in life. And the constant renewal of mind—the daily change of mind—is possible regardless of times, circumstances or places. He who can change his mind every day and think the new about everything every day, will always be well; he will always have happiness; he will always be free; his life will always be interesting; he will constantly move forward into the larger, the richer and the better; and whatever is needed for his welfare today, of that he shall surely have abundance.”
― Christian D. Larson
“Remove ‘shoulds’ from your vocabulary this year. Start your journey of self-love now.”
― Kelly Martin
