A wish for 2016

IMG_20140712_150404I’m not going to wish for a “Happy New Year”.
We all know that constant happiness doesn’t exist.
Happiness is a state of mind that happens
when we are content with our achievements
and appreciate the things that matter to us.
So, I wish for all of us a year of appreciation
and gratefulness for the things we have,
because there’s always someone who has less.
I wish for us to appreciate those little things
that truly matter:
small arms around our neck,
the soft touch of our loved ones,
the smell of home,
the laughter of our friends,
raindrops on our face,
the joy of a good book,
the sound of waves.
May you live your dream and passion.
May you travel and wonder.
May you find a smile to welcome you home.
May you find your path, your call, your heart.
May you find peace, music, and books
to walk your way through this New Year.

New Year
