This Is What I Hope For You In The New Year

This Is What I Hope For You In The New Year

I hope you can look back on laughs with loved ones, and look ahead to new adventures and memories that await you. 

I hope you leave the pain, the heartbreaks, and the losses behind, but carry the lessons with you.

I hope you feel compassion for yourself for any mistakes you might have made, for you were doing the best you could at the time.

I hope you realize that bad mistakes don’t really exist, just lessons learned and growth to be leaned into, should you dare.

I hope you find it in you to give yourself the love that you may have looked for in other people. You are worthy of it all.

I hope you take the chance to get to know yourself on a deeper level, because there are always deeper levels to explore.

I hope you love others wholeheartedly and without fear, knowing that every bit of love given is worth it even if it brings eventual pain.

I hope you know that whatever pain you may endure will pass and you will be a stronger human as a result.

I hope you allow yourself to feel the wide range of natural emotions that come your way rather than run from them.

I hope you take care of your mind, body, and soul, in whichever ways that feel good to you.

I hope you challenge yourself and lean into discomfort rather than avoid it.

I hope you seek meaningful connections, in loved ones and strangers alike.

I hope you have the courage to be vulnerable.

I hope you take pride in who you are, faults and all.

I hope you pay no mind to what other people think of you and the decisions you make, because you know that the only opinion that matters is your own.

I hope you believe that your voice matters.

I hope you understand that tomorrow is never promised, and that you make the most of today and every day.

And lastly, should you survive another year, I hope it is the best damn year of your life, because you knew you had the power to make it so, and you did. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
