Finding Contentment in the New Year: A Wish for All


During the holiday season, a dear friend gifted me the wishing angel in the photo. Together, we dedicated many hours this fall to wishing for the well-being of her partner and myself. To our relief, our wishes were fulfilled. Her partner triumphed over a challenging journey of surgery, a coma, and continuous medical attention, while I successfully navigated my battle with cancer, free from any adverse reactions caused by three medications, and experienced a remarkable rejuvenation of my bones.


As we embark on the journey of 2024, my sincerest wish is for a year filled with good health and kindness for everyone. Let this be a year where contentment takes centre stage. Rather than making resolutions, I will continue to set intentions each day, recognizing that true transformation starts from within. By embracing intentions, I cultivate compassion towards myself and others. I choose not to resolve this year, as it confines me to a future outcome that may lead to either success or failure. The lessons of 2023 have taught me that life doesn't always unfold according to our plans, regardless of our efforts or aspirations.


Within my daily practices of mindfulness, whether it be on the yoga mat, in quiet solitude, or immersed in nature, I have outlined several intentions that I will incorporate. From this list, I will select an intention to focus on throughout my day. Feel free to choose from my examples of intentions or share your own in the comments section. Together, let us commit to working in the present moment, supporting each other as we walk one another home creating a year ahead that is filled with health, gentleness, and kindness.


I will trust myself

I can move past this moment

My body is my ally

I inhale worry, and exhale peace

I will speak kindly to myself

This to shall pass

I will let go and I am free

I will eat to nourish my body, my spirit

I forgive myself

I love and I am loved


Happy New Year!
