In this first week of 2015, as we anticipate the next 12 months and all they may offer, I wish you a year filled with growth, joy and whatever it is you would like it to be filled with. But in case you prefer more specific blessings…
May you always have privacy in the bathroom. (Parent shout-out.)
May your children always be as sweet to you and others as they are right before they drift off and right after they wake up.
May you and your whole family sleep an uninterrupted 8-12 hours every night, including on Sunday nights, and not feel guilty or like you should be doing something else when you do.
May your meals taste rich and decadent but actually contain the exact amount of calories required to chew them.
May you learn to love exercising and find a physical activity that holds your interest enough that you do it frequently throughout the year.
May you have nights (or days) out with your most special someone often enough that you are comfortable going to a movie in yoga pants, hiking until you’re covered in desert dust, or eating buffalo wings and playing trivia.
May you have many wonderful, trustworthy caregivers who are always available so you know your children are happy and well cared for when you do.
May you find that thing you lost two years ago but could never figure out where it went, and it’s not damaged at all.
Beside it, may you find a $50 bill…that you don’t need because you already have all the abundance you require.
May you discover some thing, some place, some idea or someone that is entirely new and makes you see things differently.
May you be truly and delightfully surprised at least once.
May you find new energy and enthusiasm for what you do every day. If you don’t, may you easily and quickly find something that brings new energy and enthusiasm to your life and purpose to your soul.
May you feel the ocean-deep and cosmos-wide support of a strong universal community—affectionate friends filled with laughter, family filled with unconditional acceptance, cities filled with friendly neighbors, countries filled with helpful citizens, planets filled with open hearts and open minds, and everlasting love from all.
May you have at least one moment when you know to your core you are a vital part of an intricately intertwined and unfathomably beautiful matrix of souls and lives that offers a reason for everything and only has the greatest good of all at heart. May you therefore be filled with peace, awe, clarity and empowerment. May that carry you through your darkest days.
May you always feel heard.
May you always feel understood.
May you always feel safe.
May you always feel honored and respected.
May you always know you are deeply loved—by those nearby, but also by the power/source/being/God/universe/Spirit/light that exists within and all around you. May you know true love of self, and know you are worthy of it.
Above all, may you regularly lift your face to the sky and laugh with pleasure just to be alive.
Many blessings to you and yours. Bring it on, 2015.
