None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Happy New Year

From My Family to Yours
In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship but never in want. 
---Irish toast---

My wish is that, if you are struggling with something in your life, you find in this quote from Neil Gaiman the push to move up and beyond whatever it is that troubling you.

“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, and more importantly,
you're doing something.
 So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish 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: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
 Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

Interesting words, I tell my children you need to make mistakes in life. Some will be small and some will be big but by making mistakes you will learn if it was the right or wrong choice to make.
