I wish you happiness rooted not in materialism, but in self-reliance and in gratitude.
I wish you success, determined by how you affect those around you, above you and especially beneath you.
I wish you never to relinquish your curiosity and wonder at the world; this wide-eyed amazement must be replenished as soon as you feel yourself drained from the process of “growing up.”
I wish you knowledge and the ability to discern what is important, true, and moral.
I wish you perseverance for never-ending making of a better tomorrow.
I wish you never to forget the value of empathy, imagination and compassion.
I wish you many wide and deep experiences— those that shake up your supposed beliefs, your supposed fears, and your supposed successes.
I wish you hardships, but I also wish you resilience.
I wish you love.
