The freezing temperatures may be a sign, or the sudden explosion of people hogging the treadmills at the gym. Or maybe it’s the sense of excitement and ambition you feel. Because it’s here. A New Year. And these are just a few things I wish for you.

A year of cliché dates with the love of your life.
A year of maps that lead to different destinations.
A year of focusing on health rather than image.
A year embracing your flaws and perfecting them.
And I wish you a year of purpose.
