What gives you hope?

So? What gives you hope?

I’ve gotta admit, I’ve been struggling for a little while. Can’t quite seem to get myself back to where I like to be. Not sure where I went off the tracks…car troubles, bankruptcy, divorce, health, worries, stress. It all seems to be gaining on me lately. I haven’t really been giving anything my all…too scatterbrained.

And I’ve been seeing posts on Facebook – commercials on TV – all sorts of things that make me stop for a moment, and really start to question what’s up. It is so easy for me to get caught up in the moment. And so much easier for me to stay there, like a record stuck in a groove, replaying over and over again. I know I’ve got some of that going on. Just can’t seem to get the skip going.

I know how to get there…gratitude. And I was seeing glimpses of that today. Grateful that I wasn’t on the receiving end of a workforce reduction. Thankful for my fabulous children with whom I had a spectacular weekend. Glad the utilities are still on today, and hopeful that they will be tomorrow. (Really gotta tackle the laundry).

So what gives you hope? I know it is hope that keeps me going. That at some point every day won’t be like today. At some point things will be better. They already are monumentally better than they were only five years ago. Some days it is hard to imagine. But hope keeps me there.
