I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever. Neil Gaiman

May Light always surround you;
 Hope kindle and rebound you.
 May your Hurts turn to Healing;
 Your Heart embrace Feeling.
 May Wounds become Wisdom;
 Every Kindness a Prism.
 May Laughter infect you;
 Your Passion resurrect you.
 May Goodness inspire 
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For, 
May your arms Never Tire. D. Simone

This year
Hang on to your truth and respect the truth of others.
Choose to be happy
Forgive those that you can forgive and seek the forgiveness of someone who deserves it
Do something outside of your comfort zone
Be the voice for someone who has no voice
Be quiet strength
Be the type of kindess that is strength
Remember that love is a verb
Choose healthy foods, activites and people
Persevere
Wish people a lovely day
Live honestly, truly and with integrity. Source Unknown

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art (write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can) and I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
