Many wish wonderful things at the beginning of the New Year. I don’t want to be the exception. But I also don’t want to wish you the same tried and tired things that we are commonly wished. So, this year, I want to not wish you the familiar and instead wish you the better:
- I do not wish you more time. I wish you better use of the time you have.
- I do not wish you improved relationships. I wish you the commitment to make your relationships better.
- I do not wish you better health. I wish for better choices in eating, exercising and living.
- I do not wish you more money. I wish you gratitude and wise use of the wealth you already possess.
- I do not wish you more prosperity. I wish you the discipline that produces greater success.
- I do not wish you patience. I wish you the recognition that feeling impatient is the very opportunity to develop patience.
- I do not wish you wisdom. I wish, for you, the ability to grow wise from the lessons of your own life and the lives of others.
- I do not wish you courage. I wish you the commitment to act even if you are afraid.
- I do not wish you fewer setbacks. I wish you greater resilience.
- I do now wish you smaller problems. I wish you bigger solutions.
- I do not wish you happiness. I wish you the choice to be happy.
Happy New Year.
