In This New Year, I hope You Live Louder

In this new year, I hope you live louder

In this new year, I hope you live louder.
I hope you laugh more.
I hope you sing at the top of your lungs.
I hope you drive with the windows down
and let the wind rustle through your hair.
I hope you hug. I hope you kiss.
I hope you surround yourself with people
who make you feel alive.
I hope you become the type of person
that brings good energy wherever you go,
and the type of person people wants to be around.
I hope you speak what’s on your mind,
that you raise your voice for injustice,
that you tell others that you love them,
instead of waiting until it’s too late.
I hope you live louder, shine brighter.
This is your year.
