Christmas is my favorite time of the year, not to be too cliche. New Year’s, however, never really held much significance for me. I have come to an appreciation of it, though. And I feel it is important to have a time to reflect back and look forward. Whether or not you do annual goals, or stay up and party, go to bed early, or any other number of traditions of this time of the year, “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.”
- Neil Gaiman
