Happy New Year From The Chicago Files: My Wishes For You

In 2017 I have posted a lot of sunrise pictures from my little vantage point here in Chicago overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan.  I find it rather fitting to close out the year with a photo of a sunset (representing the end of the year and looking forward to the upcoming year) from another Great Lake perspective, that of Lake Ontario from Toronto’s stunning Harbourfront.

My wish for you in 2018 is that you find yourself in many happy and delightful moments, each one creating memories that will make your heart sing in the years to come.

My wish for you in 2018 is that it is a year you feel gratitude for the little, wonderful experiences that would otherwise go unnoticed, but that somehow creep into your awareness and allow you to feel these special gems for the gifts they truly are.

My wish for you in 2018 includes taking time for yourself to re-energize your batteries should you feel the need to recharge.

My wish for you in 2018 is to realize you don’t have to sacrifice your own well-being in order to please others; believe me, it never works in your favor.

My wish for you in 2018 is that your sense of self is recognized for the amazing person you are, and not for what anyone else attempts to show you otherwise.

My biggest wish for you in 2018 is to feel the wishes I wish for you and know you deserve every single joyous moment of your heart’s desire.

A very Happy New Year to you, my amazing readers!
