Happy New Year!

Every year one of my New Year's resolutions is to be more organized...
Today while I was cleaning up one of my piles of inspiration...I found this vintage book!

I bought it a few months ago at a thrift store and today it seemed an appropriate message for beginning a new year.
It is a self help book given to high school graduates etc...
I Dare You!
Copyright 1941
The purpose of this book is to DARE readers to:

STAND TALL --- THINK TALL
SMILE TALL --- LIVE TALL

The author,William H. Danforth, is challenging you...
I Dare You,whoever you are, to share with others the fruits of your daring. Catch a passion for helping others and a richer life will come back to you!
Some of the chapters are...

I DARE YOU TO ADVENTURE
I DARE YOU TO DO THINGS
I DARE YOU TO BE STRONG
I DARE YOU TO THINK CREATIVELY
I DARE YOU TO DEVELOP A MAGNETIC PERSONALITY
I DARE YOU TO BUILD CHARACTER
I DARE YOU TO SHARE



He ends the book with...
Will you Dare yourself?
What are YOU going to do to lift yourself out of the crowd and make something significant out of your life?

In 2010 I Dare you to Sparkle!

Best Wishes in the New Year.
Jana

Jana- Wondering if the "SPARKLE" pin is yours and if so-do you know if it is still available somewhere for purchase? It is the name of my daughter's dance team and would love to get them for everyone. Thanks much, Laurie
