I know that at the turn of the year, people tend to make New Year’s resolutions. Not me. The closest I come to those is on my birthday when I take stock of my life so far and think about where I want to go in the next year.
So when the new year turns, I like to think about what I hope for as it relates to more than just myself. It’s what I hope for my husband and kittens, my family, my friends, my neighbors, and community. It’s what I hope for all Americans and all people around the world. It’s even what I hope for animals and nature in general. It’s different for each, but I put my hopes out there to the universe. I figure it can’t hurt, and it just might help 😊
Hope is a powerful thing. There is a Greek Myth about Pandora and her box. I’m guessing you may have heard of it. All the evil ills anyone could think of escaped from Pandora’s box, but she closed it just in time to keep hope inside. Hope motivates. It calms. It gives comfort, and it inspires.
I hope your next year is better than the last one. Most of all, I hope you do not let hope escape from your heart.
