A Few Random Thoughts About Happy New Year

What do you think?
I’m probing my mind to understand what I mean when I say “Have a Happy New Year.” Truly, I never thought about it until now, and think the phrase calls for an intention which goes out to all I meet and greet. The intention should be different since we are all at different stages in the puzzle of life. It sounds simple, but I find crafting this intention to be a challenge. If we were talking hugs—real hugs, which communicate love, connection, empathy or compassion without a word being spoken—the meaning would be clear. A sincere hug is almost the perfect communicator.
However, for this intention my imperfect words will have to do.
So here goes! Happy New Year! I wish you the intention of peace. I wish you an open heart to grow. I wish you meaningful friendships and love. I wish you the strength you may need. I wish you courage to be you, to love you, to cherish you. I wish you enough faith, hope, love and fulfillment to carry you all the days of your life. I wish you good health. I wish you the ability to let go, to release resentments, to seek forgiveness, and to forgive. I wish you fun—to be a kid and be in the moment with joy and respect for others and yourself.
My wish for me is to become a better person, to continue to seek the good, to enjoy every moment of the gift of life, to cherish family, loved ones, and friends.
For the world, each time I utter the phrase “Happy New Year” I will think of world peace, of kindness, understanding, patience, uniting rather than dividing.
