Resolve to keep looking for life's little pleasures and share them with as many people as you can as often as you can. A New Year can't get any happier than that.
As for that quote supposedly from Gandhi, well, it's one of those well-intended inaccurate aphorisms we seem to like these days.
What Gandhi really said was, "If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do."
So personal change is fine, but you need the social transformation, too. A more nuanced and complex idea, but one in keeping with the season.
Happy New Year!
