New year, new you…Right? We hate to break it to you, but we’re not sure it works that way. The beginning of a New Year is always going to be exciting, but why do we always have to put so much pressure on ourselves to start over?

There is probably nothing wrong with the old you, but without a doubt there are a few things you can improve on… we all can.  Rolling in the New Year, comes with setting our New Year’s resolutions. At first we’re pumped and motivated, but (for 99% of us) as soon as February starts to creep up on us, our motivation decreases and those resolutions become a thing of the past.

Maybe this year it doesn’t have to be that way. We want you to jump into 2017 with a positive start because your “new year, new me” comes with good intentions. We’ve picked some of our favourite quotes to inspire you this year. Cheers to creating, exploring, taking risks, conquering the world and of course to 2017!
