If the Past Year Was a Challenging One, This Is My New Year's Wish for You...

If you were ill
If you cared for the ill
If you advocated for your child
Searching for answers
This is my wish for you.

If your prayers went unanswered
Your dreams unfulfilled
If you felt lost
Felt alone
This is my wish for you.

If you experienced loss
Grief washing over you like a tidal wave
If you felt like giving up
Felt like shouting out
This is my wish for you.

If people disappointed you
Your leaders disappointed you
Your country disappointed you
The world disappointed you
This is my wish for you.

If you felt overwhelmed
Felt misunderstood
Felt abandoned
Felt silenced
This is my wish for you:


People who see you, hear you, believe you.

A passionate spirit

Moments of inspiration
Moments of clarity
Moments of wonder

Wishing you a very happy new year.
