My Wish For You

Posted: December 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Whether you are celebrating Christmas this weekend or not, I have a few things I wish for each and every one of you…

To feel the love of others surrounding you, in person or in spirit.

To laugh hard or at the very least smile often.

To enjoy something insanely delicious and savor every bite, guilt-free.


To look at yourself and feel incredibly beautiful, because you are.


To make a joyful memory.


To appreciate any gifts you may receive, but still value the gift of this life and its many blessings above all else.

To let go of any pain, negativity, grudges, etc that may hold you back from fully embracing the beauty of the day.

To act like a kid again.

To drink a glass, or two, of wine. Do it for me, at the very least!


To live and live fully.
