“Kitesurfers – After Hurricane Ike – Galveston, TX, 2008”
December greetings to you…
Nearly three years ago I posted my article “I Wish That For You Too”on this blog. Reflecting on what I wanted to share with you to begin the month of December, it came to mind as the perfect reminder for these times.
In the middle of so many things happening in the world – people with good things coming to them, others experiencing total devastation – we often wonder what we can do, how to act.
* Embrace your good and live it to the max and
* Recognize the struggles of others, understanding that we all need to be seen.
Whether it’s for the outer accomplishments in work, home, and relationships, or for expressing and living the inner beauty each of us carry-
We all appreciate the experience of knowing that others are watching, caring, and wishing the best for us.
I’ve included my revised “I Wish That For You Too” article below –
May it help you feel more comfortable about having dreams at a time when others are sad and depressed…and may it also help you to tell others what you need, if or when you are similarly challenged.
As Part of My Wish For You:
For seven days, starting December 5th, I’ll be posting daily a short, inspirational wish in audio format for you to play to start your day (or any time you’d like to be uplifted!)
Whether you’re high on life, or feeling discouraged and in fear –
I see you.
And I wish you the essence of this holiday season – joy, love, inner connection, and living fully.
Yes. “I wish that for you too.”

At one point in the conversation, however, I said, “I still wish….” and mentioned a long-held desire that I’ve had, and still would like to see take place.
“Hey, don’t push it!” my friend admonished me. “Seems like you have a pretty good deal now.”
Wow! In a flash, my heart sank….”
