“Put yourself on the wish list” the advertisers say on New Year’s Eve, hoping I would buy a new car perhaps.

What do I wish for myself this year?

I only want one thing: “I want to be fully present.”

Present to feel my emotions and then let them go. Present to smell and taste. Present to breathe deeply.

Present without the inbreaking of the past or future. Present without already rushing to the next thing to do. Present without worrying about my life or judging myself or others.

Present to love deeply and intensely. Present to pause and just “be”. Present and putting the “here and now” on my wish list.

Yes, “here and now” – that is “me”!
