Here we are again, just before the New Year and the world’s buzzing. But what if, like me, you’re sitting there thinking, ‘What do I want? Nothing. I don’t want anything.’ It’s a sentiment that’s been on my mind, and I heard some of you can relate.
Sure thing, we all know by now that it’s okay not to want the usual stuff. No fancy things, no far-off vacations. What I’ve known all along is that deep down, I crave the simple things – a warm hug, a lazy morning, a gentle kiss on the forehead, a walk on the beach, or maybe a stroll through the park, a good book under a cozy blanket while snuggling with my furry companion, a gentle touch…. It’s like beneath the veneer of material wants lies a treasure trove of soulful longings.
So, if you’re feeling this way too, maybe it’s because your heart is longing for the real gems of life. Give yourself the gift of rest, of self-care, of being a kid at heart. And then… maybe, you’ll start wanting things you never thought you did.
Or maybe you’re one of those lucky souls who feel like they already have it all. Health, love, friends, family, and a fulfilling life – you name it, you’ve got it, it’s yours. The New Year might not bring that same thrill it once did, but that’s okay too.
Here’s what I’d wish for you: I hope you continue to want. Let the excitement and zest for life seep back in. And as for that wonderful life you’re living, let’s keep those settings intact – health, wealth, love, and all the good stuff. Let’s make it even better. Who wouldn’t want that, right?
Now, if you’re like me, you’re always wanting something, but it’s not easy to put your finger on it. Life’s a bit like a grand treasure hunt, and the Universe keeps surprising us with better options than we could ever dream up.
So, here’s my New Year wish for you: Keep playing the universal game, my friend. Be the co-author of your own adventure, and let the Universe be your partner in creativity. Wish for wonders, big and small, to paint your days with brightness and joy. As Rumi beautifully put it, ‘Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.’
So, which option resonates with you? Or maybe you’ve got a unique one of your own? Because when it comes to New Year wishes, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Here’s to a year filled with whatever you want, my friend.
I Just Want the Real
In this fading year’s glow,
looking out the window,
wondering, what’s it all for, where’s it all go?
Not for the shiny stuff, or those postcard scenes,
but for those quiet moments, where true meaning leans.
Ever feel that? Just wanting the real,
a laugh with friends, a home-cooked meal.
Not the loud, not the bright, not the fast,
but those slow, small things, the ones that last.
You know, those times, nothing big, just right,
like finding a star in the vast night.
Or that feeling, when someone really sees you,
in a world that spins, that’s rare, that’s true.
There are folks who’ve got it all, or so it seems,
hearts full, life rich, living their dreams.
For them, maybe the New Year’s just another day,
but deep down, don’t we all just want to play?
Play at life, find our joy, our own beat,
in the smiles we share, in the hearts we meet.
Maybe that’s the treasure, not gold, not fame,
but those moments of love, that’s the real game.
And for those still searching, looking for a sign,
see, life’s not just a straight line.
It’s okay to wander, to explore, to dream,
to find your own stream, your own theme.
So, as the New Year rings, in its silent way,
here’s my wish for you, come what may:
Find those moments, simple, but oh so bright,
that make you feel Alive, that make everything right.
