It feels more like something that comes from the heart than from the head. It also leaves more room for that awful thing we call unpredictability. Resolutions are beautiful but they are like plans, and we all know sometimes life gets in the way of our plans. Wishes are more like something we cast upon the stars and hope for. And hope is a beautiful sentiment to hold in the palm of your hand as you start a new year.
- What I love and wish to continue
- What I want more of
- What I want less of or need to let go of
Abundance. Passion. Peace.
What doesn’t fit these themes, doesn’t fit my year.
No one knows what the year will bring, what winds we’ll weather, what new places we’ll see, who we’ll meet and who we may lose, what we will achieve, what we will regret, how often we’ll feel pain, how often we’ll think to ourselves, “I am happy right now”. It’s a crazy process, Life. It pushes and pulls and hurts and heals. My biggest wish is to look back at the end of the year and to feel peaceful about the now and hopeful about the future.
And I wish the same for all of you!
Happy New Year, from my heart to yours.
