Hope

I was reading Pat Sloan's post on her 'word of the year', you can read all about it here
The more I thought about it the more I wanted my own word. I tossed words about, I looked up definitions. A few of the words I went through are thrive, success, joy. I finally decided on 'Hope'. Wikipedia defines it as an 'optimistic attitude'.
 I can do this. Since I've never done this before it might not be easy and I may forget it at times. But even if I do forget hope, I hope to bring it back in my life and everything I do.
I am thinking of designing a small wall hanging with my word hope in it, as a gentle reminder.

I like this quote by Emily Dickinson.

“Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul 
And sings the tune without the words 
And never stops at all.” 
― Emily Dickinson

-I hope that my family is happy and healthy.
- As a cancer survivor I hope I am healthy.
-I hope to become a better blogger, it is not something I'm used to doing.
-I hope to feel accomplished without feeling stressed.

In 2015 I shall endeavor to remember to hope.

 I hope you are having a great day.

I couldn't resist commenting. I really love that poem and your word, hope. I've chosen focus. It's not that I want to focus on one thing at a time; I'm doing different things every day. It's rather that I want to be more mindful and present .
