January Quotes

“Little January
Tapped at my door today.
And said, “Put on your winter wraps,
And come outdoors to play.”
Little January
Is always full of fun;
Until the set of sun.
Little January
Will stay a month with me
And we will have such jolly times –
Just come along and see.”

  • Winifred C. Marshall, January

Inner Journey:


“The most pathetic person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
— Helen Keller

What’s the big picture for your life? Always have a larger, purposeful, even spiritually ideal picture of where you are going. Your mind needs to have a clear and challenging vision to draw you ever upwards.

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead.”
— Louisa May Alcott

“The only limits are, as always, those of vision.”
— James Broughton


A Note from the Universe

Don’t let the dazzling heights you aspire to scare you from getting started.

After all, few could climb Mt. Everest tomorrow, though virtually all could begin preparing.

Daily Wisdom
January 17, 2022

“They are surely to be esteemed the bravest of spirits who, having the clearest sense of both the pains and pleasures of life, do not on that account shrink from danger.”


Look at the examples we have been given. From the Wright Brothers, to Helen Keller, to Oprah Winfrey, and so many more creative, brave and determined souls. Where would we be today if they decided it was easier to stay home and sit on the couch? They risked! They dared! And they soared! And we can do the same

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Star

Wake up with a bright, buoyant spirit that will prevent any snag or difficulty from getting you down. You should acknowledge no setbacks or let any problem get in your way. If something comes up that needs more attention, you’ll deal with it without thinking twice. You can deal with any delay and make a quick if not instantaneous recovery.
