1/5/15, A Fresh Start…The Best is Yet to Come


I hope the new year is off to a great start and will only get better and better.

As I’ve mentioned to you before, I love quotations that I find here and there, and I frame many of them and put them on my office walls to inspire me. Sometimes just a few wise words at the right time can make a difference. So I thought I’d share some with you here, to inspire you too, and get the new year off to a happy start. I hope you like these too:

– Miracles DO happen!! (I have that one hanging right above my computer, where I see it whenever I send or read an email).

– “Life is a series of thousands of tiny miracles” Mike Greenberg.

– No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.

– “There are three things in life that are important.
The first is kindness. The second is kindness. The third is kindness.” William James

– There is No Set path, just follow your heart.

– Believe in the power of believing in yourself.

– Do what you can’t do later.

– Live the present, dream for the future, learn from the past.

– “Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.” Teddy Roosevelt.

– It is never too late to start your life over.

– I have the power to transform my life.

– If you can dream it, you can do it.

– Let your light shine!

– “When you go through a disappointment, don’t stop on that page!” Rev. Joel Osteen

– Bounce Back

– The night is darkest before the dawn

– “Never, Never, never, never Give Up.” Winston Churchill

– “One cannot do big things, only small ones, with an immense amount of love.” Mother Teresa

– Nothing is impossible.

– he best is yet to come.

Happy New Year to you, all my love, Danielle

    Dear Danielle Steel,
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hope all for the new year will bless you like you never imagined. I can’t wait to hear about any new projects you might be working on.
    I actually find myself always having to catchup on your entries. I let time lapse and before long i’m a month behind on what’s been going on. I’m sorry about your accident last month. I’m glad that you recovered;a concussion is serious no matter how mild. I liked the quotes you added for the new year. “Do what you can’t do later,” I found to be amusing and so commonsense, we tend to do that to ourselves from time to time…”put things off”<< It's contagious and too easy of a choice. And the excuses are just as notorious and endless.lol
    I wish you well for 2015, take care.

    My heart goes out to the people in France.

    Hi Danielle – I was just watching the events in Paris – the million plus people showing support for the victims
    & their families. I must compliment the Paris officials who responded with incredible speed. They didn’t waste any
    time pursuing the (Terrorists). The million plus people gathered peacefully and (United) in one cause. Its a shame that the US couldn’t be united like that – but we know why that is. !!!!!!!!! I love your words of wisdom for the New Year – Happy New Year and The Best is Yet to Come

    Sincerely Mike Reid

    I agree with your posts on kindness etc. above. However, wearing ivory bracelets is not kind. Slaughtering elephants for ivory is brutal, inhuman and very, very unkind. How can you have Salima in “A Perfect Life” buy an ivory bracelet? This is totally unkind and out of touch with ethical gifting in a modern world where we should all strive to be more kind and aware. An elephant is apparently slaughtered approximately every 15 minutes to make a trinket such as a bracelet for the ignorant, uninformed, unkind or uncaring to wear – it is an atrocity on a par with blood diamonds. I was absolutely horrified to read in your book that you support such activity. Please, consider correcting this in future editions. Tanya Nockler-Golding, Cape Town, South Africa
