I know this isn’t exactly what this tab was originally created to do, but I wasn’t sure where it would fit otherwise. These are my wishes that I have for you as you start the new year. While I wrote this with my friends and family in mind, it applies to everyone, even if we have never met. Above all, I hope you have a fantastic 2015.
This is for you.
When you start the new year, I hope it is filled with laughter. Your year should be filled with people you care about, those who can make you laugh so hard you cry. I wish that you have people in your life who can make you smile and laugh even when you are sad. I hope you have moments when you can enjoy early mornings, dance your heart out, sing in the shower, or run out in the rain. I hope you take time to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets and that you notice the beauty in the world around you.
I hope you sometimes have dishes that sit in the sink or clothes that go unfolded because you are too busy enjoying life and that you learn more about the world around you. I hope you are happy. I hope you don’t take yourself too seriously and learn to do the same for others. I hope you have fun. I want you to live with a purpose by following your desires and decisions, whether this is a day filled with activities or relaxation. Even more so, I hope you feel strong and confident in your decisions. I hope you discover that sometimes strength can be found in vulnerability and that uncertainty is a part of life, not something you can avoid.
I hope you fall in love with a new song and surround yourself with music often. I want you to find courage to face whatever life may throw at you, even if this courage needs to be used to ask others for help. I hope you become less focused on other people’s thoughts and opinions and that you are forgiving of yourself when you make mistakes and do the same for others around you. I hope you find friends everywhere you go and that you teach them how to be a good friend by being a good friend to them.
I hope you find love this year, whether it last for a few months or for a lifetime. You deserve to let this love enrich your life and change how you see the world. I hope that if your heart breaks, that it is always mended by those who care about you. I hope I can be there for you as much as you have been for me. I hope you realize the importance of the small things. I hope you are kind to others and more importantly, yourself. I hope you take time for you.
Finally, I hope you always find beauty from pain and love yourself for being you. You are an amazing person. Look at each day as a new beginning and forget the trials of the past. Remember how many people love you and remind those that you don’t tell often. Smile, and get ready to take on a new year.
