I just fell under the spell of these magnificent wishes from Frédéric Lenoir which just reflect so well what I’d also wish to express for this new year. May it be rich, great, welcoming, and above all, may we accept to take it as it comes, while understanding that everything we live is part of our path of evolution, is an invitation, there at the right time and at the right place and that everything is a gift.
I wish you my friend for this new year
to learn to love life even more.
To love it through its ups and downs,
its pleasant moments and its more difficult moments.
To love it for the joys it offers you, but also for the sorrows it invites you to go through.
To love it in its light and darkness,
in evidence and in doubt.
To love it in the wonder of births, as well as in the pain of departures.
I wish you to discover that great joys can spring forth after deep sorrows.
May the most beautiful lights emerge from the darkest nights.
That without experience of misfortune, you would have no awareness of happiness.
I wish you my friend to love life, all your life, and not just when it seems most favourable to you.
Look at it as an indivisible whole.
And then you will discover that the secret of true happiness is none other than an unconditional love of life.
With kind regards,
