Ripples v8.02: Ripples of NEW ENDINGS!
1/9/06: your FREE weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
I may not have gone where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.

No one can go back and
make a brand new start.
Anyone can start from now and
make a brand new ending.

Many of us have been pondering the idea of “new year’s resolutions” the past few weeks, and some of us are so on top of things we have already set AND broken our resolutions! Several members of our Ripples community commented that they don’t like the concept of resolutions, and have posted some alternative methods of goal setting (see the community section of our website for more info).
I enjoy this week’s quotes because they take the emphasis off of beginnings and instead focus on the ENDINGS. If you have resisted the idea of resolutions, maybe this week you can just create an image of what you want your life (school, work, health, relationships, etc.) to like at the END of the year, and start taking some consistent actions that will help you get there.
