Inspirational quotes are popular because we see reflected in the wise words of great minds validation of who we feel we are and motivation for whom we want to become.
Each month Gary Blair, President and owner of i24 Call Management Solutions publishes a newsletter containing his favourite quotes – his ‘gems’.
Welcome to January – the month of new beginnings!
This is the time of year most of us stop and take stock of our lives – a good practice to do more than once every twelve months.
This month’s Gems are dedicated to the way in which some folks view this age-old tradition.
I wish you a happy and healthy 2018 and hope you succeed in reaching all the good things you aspire to – whether new or ongoing.”

And the thought I’d like to leave you with this month is:
“We spend January 1 walking through our lives.
room by room,
drawing up a list of work to be done,
cracks to be patched.
Maybe this year, to balance the list,
we ought to walk through the room of our lives,
not looking for flaws,
but for potential.
– Ellen Goodman
Your gems are always profound and meaningful. For me, January has the most significance…a new beginning.
Hope you and Earl are healthy and enjoying the winter season. Alan and I miss your inlaws and your presence in Florida. Be happy and healthy and have an especially good 2018.
How lovely to hear from you and thank you for those very kind words.
We are both well, thanks, as I hope you and Alan are equally. We miss Miriam terribly and remember the days when everyone was alive and well and life was more care free, including our Florida trips.
A very happy new year to you as well. Healthy, joyous and meaningful!
Well researched and curated list of quotes – as usual.
Thank you, David. Very much appreciated. Happy New Year.
Thank you for your friendship throughout 2017, especially during the passing of my Willy in April past. What would I do without Gems like you and Earl!
All the best for 2018, my friends!
Thank you for those very kind words and right back at you. Some friends come into your life and they make it hard to remember what the world was like without them. Kindred spirits! Happy New Year to you as well, may it be 365 days of joy and meaningfulness!
Thanks for such a great collection of quotes. I might not be reading this in January but I am taking back so much with me upon reading them. I’ll try to apply all of them in my life and I am sure about a radical positive transformation within me and in my personal as well as professional life by doing this.
You’re most welcome. The universal truths are never time sensitive, not to worry. Glad you enjoyed and very happy if they resonate for you!
