By Izabelle Cassandra Alexander
May your new year be wonderful
in every way possible!
May you be healthy and full of zest,
living each moment unfolding
to your and others’ highest best.
Delight in the big surprises and
small miracles of life.
May joy fill your heart
and every day,
love surround you as you keep on
pursuing your dreams,
and change for a better version of you
Inspiration, success, and moments of silence
embedded in unsurpassable peace
may wash over you and heal
each particle of your being
exposed to sickness or pain.
A new year may recharge and liven your soul.
Be as happy as you can be, unimaginable,
like never before.
Make your mark in the world
and this new year count!
