It’s the beginning of another year, 2022. Many of us are hoping the year is not indicative of its name and a repeat of 2020. In any case, the year is what we make it and we are anticipating over 300 days filled with uncertainty; yet, in this uncertainty, there are new beginnings, new chapters, new opportunities, and new possibilities.

To face a new year means to let the others go, and, in doing so, I love looking at quotes for inspiration at the beginning of the year to refocus and refresh to begin my year. This helps me make my vision board, take the year with a new perspective, and recalculate my directions.

Here are twenty-two quotes I want to share with you for 2022:

What feels like the end is often the beginning.


“Year’s end, all corners of this floating world, swept.” Matsuo Basho

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” Karen Lamb

“Let all the failures of your past year be your best guide in the New Year.” Mehmet Murat Ildan
