the best ingredients for a happy 2012

Take twelve fine, full-grown months;
see that these are thoroughly free 
from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate,
cleanse them completely from every clinging spite;
pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness;
in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—
have them fresh and clean
as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time.
Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts.
Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time 
(so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) 
but prepare one day at a time.

Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest
(leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), 
prayer,meditation, and one well-selected resolution.
Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, 
a pinch of folly, 
a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.

- Recipe for a Happy New Year

wishing you all a very happy and blessed new year
