New Year Quotes – new beginnings
“The magic in new beginnings is truly the most powerful of them all.” ―Josiyah Martin
Even deciding to make a small change in your life can make all the difference; it doesn’t have to be a complete exercise regime, or a diet, but something as simple as trying to give at least one compliment a day! You never know what will refresh your life, and bring a newfound sense of magic to your day.
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” —George Eliot
This stunning quote from Eliot encapsulates what it means to turn over a new leaf. As we ring in the new year of 2022, don’t hold yourself back! Take ownership of everything you’ve ever wanted to do, and live life to its fullest.
“You are never too old to reinvent yourself.” —Steve Harvey
New year quotes – action!
In a similar vein, this quote might resonate with you if you’ve always been scared about taking that step, or making that choice; a new year is the perfect time to act on a wish you’ve always held in your heart but never had the strength to realise.

New Year Quotes – be brave and bold!
I think so many people are wary of a new year, because resolutions put pressure on them to do everything perfectly and fulfill everything exactly.
The new year holds potential rather than pressure, and hope- don’t feel pressure to ‘complete’ a new year, but use it to feel refreshed and inspired. And never be afraid to make mistakes, don’t worry that something isn’t perfect, but embrace the fact that you’re doing something new!
“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” – Brad Paisley
New year is a blank slate; use it to its fullest potential by making choices you’ve always wanted to, or by reconnecting with old friends. You’re allowed to overturn your previous choices, and replace them with new, exciting ones!
“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
― Oprah Winfrey
New Year Quotes for a New chapter
A new year is effectively just another chapter in your life, and another chance to do something you’re passionate about.
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” — T.S. Eliot
If you’re looking to inspire a fresh start in the new year of 2022, these new year quotes might help you along your way. Forget mistakes and problems from 2021, and move forward with your goals and dreams!
“New year is another opportunity of seeing life with little more caring, compassion, maturity and beauty.” — Amit Ray
Whilst it’s important to consider what the new year holds for your personal ambition and wellbeing, it also might be worth considering how you can have an impact on the lives of those around you. In 2022, maybe set your new year’s resolution as trying to be more empathetic, or compassionate towards friends and family, or trying to appreciate beauty and stand still for a moment every day.
New Year Quotes – Embrace your life
‘Life is short’ really means ‘do something.’ —Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
A new year is nothing if not a moment to seize; abandon preconceptions and uncertainty, and do that thing you’ve always wanted to do! Whether it be a wacky hairstyle, or a business move, feel revived by the new year and embrace it.
“It is your right to choose what you do and don’t do, to choose what you believe in and don’t believe in. It is your right to curate your life and your own perspective.” —Lady Gaga
On the other hand, if you feel that your year has been made up of constantly moving your life to fit around others, and maybe feel drained or stressed at the end of 2021, this quote might help inspire a sense of self-kindness as we head into the new year of 2022. It’s important to acknowledge others, but staying true to yourself is vital when trying to inspire a fresh start.
“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” —David Bowie
Look forward to the excitement that a new year might bring! Jump into a period of opportunity, love and joy, and leave your mind open to new experiences in 2022.
“I think the more unexpected something is, the more there is to learn from it.” —Michael J. Fox
Don’t berate yourself for mistakes made over the past year, but consider the lessons learned, and be hopeful as you apply these teachings in the new year! Start viewing your time not as ‘wasted’ but as experience to lead you into the future.
New Year Quote – be bold
“Don’t wait your turn. Bet on yourself and have the confidence to stand up and say, ‘my time is now.’” —Robert F. Smith
Don’t fear being assertive! Ring in the new year with a newfound sense of confidence and determination that will ensure success in your endeavours!
