We are in the first week of the New Year. A friend sent me this thought that I share below. It has been shared many times. I don’t know who wrote it, but it wasn’t me. I merely found it beautiful. Hopefully, everyone who reads it applies it.
I don’t wish you a wonderful year where everything is good. That is a childish and utopian thought.
I want you to be encouraged to look at yourself and love yourself as you are.
May you have enough self-love to fight many battles and the humility to know that there are unwinnable battles that are not worth fighting for.
I wish you could accept that there are realities that are unchangeable and that there are others, that if you run from the place of the complaint, you can change. That you do not allow the “I cannot” and that you recognize the “I do not want.”
I wish you to listen to your truth and speak it, fully aware that it is only your truth, not that of the other. That you expose yourself to what you fear because it is the only way to overcome fear.
That you learn to tolerate “black spots” in others because you also have yours, which cancels the possibility of making a claim.
Do not condemn yourself for being wrong; you are not almighty.
That you grow, to where and when you want. I do not wish you that 2022 brings you happiness. I wish you to be happy, whatever the reality you have to live.
