Start with hope.

Today is Friday.

In an ordinary week, Friday would mark the end of a week. It would be one of fifty-two other weeks.

But today isn’t just another ordinary Friday. Today is the first day of a new calendar year.

And with this new year comes an opportunity to start anew.

Today we all start the year with hope.

We need to mark time, measure progress, and find courage to move forward.

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”

Marie Curie

Today, we start with hope and take the very next step in bringing our ideas, our brilliance, out into the world. 

May the coming year inspire you into action – with purpose.
