Happier , healthier New Year to you!
Here are my 22 wishes for you in 2022, my little raspberry torte:
1. May your socks be like the macaroni penguin and mate for life.
2. May you identify the healthiest combination of foods for you and feel no need to mention it (in detail) to anyone with ears at every single meal.
3. May your inner critic become so utterly self-obsessed she ignores you.
4. May you find satisfaction in small accomplishments.
5. May your whole wheat toast land cheeseburger side up.
6. May you recall names, passwords and punchlines with equal ease.
7. May your To Do List be deposed as your daily dictator.
8. May you be the hero for posing the question everyone else is too afraid to ask.
9. May you roll with interruptions like Tina Turner on a river.
10. May you acquire the patience of a Zen oyster.
11. May you come to relish wrinkles as face garnish.
12. May you judge others as often as you would have them judge you.
13. May you laugh before Noon daily, even if it’s at yourself.
14. May grace be your new brand standard.
15. May you binge watch squirrels on the weekends (and bonus points if they return the favor).
16. May you never dream you’re eating marshmallows and wake to find your earplugs missing.
17. May you be known as an entrepreneurial expert for minding your own business.
18. May you acquire at least one new friend (bonus points if that friend is yourself).
19. May compliments be your first language.
20. May you create something so magical, uplifting, hilarious and poignant even you can’t believe you did it.
21. May you become a world class hugger.
22. May you realize a new level of contentment whatever your circumstances may be.
If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some fla-golden tales to spin.
come in!~ Shel Silverstein
