No Resolutions, Just Wishes for 2017

No Resolutions, Just Wishes for 2017

I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions…I never have. Probably because I spent all of my life in school…as a student, and as a teacher; for me, the “new year” starts in September. I don’t believe in resolutions, not because I think they’re ridiculous or pipe dreams, I believe we all want to better ourselves, but because I think the moment we decide to change happens gradually, not because our constructed set of time has decided so.

Instead of writing resolutions this year, I write wishes I have for you, our beautiful readers and customers.

  1. I wish you enough. Enough of everything you need and some of what you want.
  2. I wish you love, friendship, companionship, and people who will be there to cheer you on, or to wipe your tears.
  3. I wish you honesty. I wish you the courage to be honest, and the courage to accept the honesty of others.
  4. I wish you the ability to see things with perspective and clarity.
  5. I wish you to hear more good news than bad, and to find the serenity to heal from the bad.
  6. I wish you warmth in the winter and cool in the summer. I wish you comfort.
  7. I wish you long showers, bubbly baths, and to find joy in every moment.
  8. I wish you the invention of the calorie-burning cupcake and muscle-toning pizza slice.
  9. I wish you respite, calm, and relaxation; the chance to dismiss stress and embrace peace.
  10. I wish you free parking, green lights, and the miles between friends and family to always feel small.
  11. I wish you a vacation – whether in the Bahamas on a beach, watching whales in Alaska, or reading a book on your front lawn.
  12. I wish you relief from your pain, calm from your anxiety, and enough coffee to keep you sane.
  13. I wish you the courage of your convictions.
  14. I wish you the ability to decline with grace, or to say no with fortitude.
  15. I wish you many open doors of opportunity.
  16. I wish you adventure, excitement, and the strength to keep it up.
  17. I wish you laughter for every single day of your life.
  18. I wish you soft skin, silky hair, a trim figure, and the ability to see it doesn’t matter.
  19. I wish for you to grow your charitable heart; to give more than you receive.
  20. I wish you the joy of pets, the laughter of children, and the bloom of flowers.
  21. I wish you find your purpose.
  22. I wish you to see you as I see you.

I wish you enough.Enough of what you need,and some of what you want..jpg
