Though I can’t really say 2016 is still a new year, I chose to share this because I just really love it.

Recipe For A Happy New Year

Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancour, and hate. Cleanse them completely from every clinging spite, pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all past.

Have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of time. Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one parts. And please do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time ( so many persons spoil the lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.

Into each day, put parts of faith, patience, courage, work ( some omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavour of the rest, sadly), hope, liberality, kindness, rest, prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution. Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.

PS: Leaving rest out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing. Don’t do it.
