2014 already?
A very happy new year to all of you! 

The thought for the day comes from Neil Gaiman, whose new year's wishes are inspiring, energizing and liberating. A teeny snip:

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. 

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.  You're doing things you've never done before...

So that's my wish—for you, for all of us and for myself:
Make New Mistakes
Make glorious, amazing mistakes.
Make mistakes nobody's ever made before.
Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect...

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, DO IT.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever...
