32 Wishes for You, Fellow Human

Words matter. They create our thoughts, which create our reality. They make up our conversations, our stories, our ideas and dreams. They mold themselves into our minds, sticking into cracks and crevices which translate our thoughts into action. They can be our best friend or our worst enemy.

As a writer and life ponderer who just celebrated her 32nd anniversary of life on Earth, I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I want for my next year of life. I'm so proud of my achievements this past year; but my past few weeks have left me feeling stuck, confused and a bit lost.

So I created a list of 32 words, and 32 matching blessings, to infuse into my mind, my heart, my reality, my 32nd year of life, and most importantly - my every day.

What I wish for myself, I certainly wish for you.

May you take what you need and leave what you don’t.

May you share the shine with those you believe would benefit.

May you infuse your days with a vibrant vocabulary and a ton of shine vibes <3
