Before we flop face first into holiday festivities, I want to share a wee present with you, my little wassail bowls. It’s a simple gift of words, wishes really, of all I hope for you this season and the new year through.
A May Wish in December
May your inner child remain your cherished friend.
May you pounce on opportunities before analysis paralyzes you.
May you run out of excuses by January 2.
May your friends’ success refine you into a world class cheerleader.
May you believe praise as easily as you do criticism.
May you be dauntless, deliberate–and delightful.
May your eyes rest on your own paper, rather than peeking at others.
May you be unapologetic in your nonsense, whimsy and quirkitude.
May you be deaf to your inner critic, but alert to wise counsel.
May grace be your brand.
May fear be an energizer, not an extinguisher.
May you crave authenticity more than notoriety.
May you knock your own sweet socks off.
If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer
If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in! ~ Shel Silverstein
