Something To Aspire To In 2014


*These are NOT my own words, I copied them from my 'Just-Arrived' 2014 Wall Calender*

If you can look at the sunset and smile, then you still have hope
If you can find beauty in the colours of a small flower, then you still have hope
If you can find pleasue in the movement of a butterfly, then you still have hope
If the smile of a child can still warm your heart, then you still have hope

If you can see the good in other people, then you still have hope
If the rain beeaking on a rooftop can still lull you to sleep, then you still have hope
If the sight of a rainbow still makes you stop and stare in wonder, then you still have hope
If the soft fur of a favored pet still feels pleasant under your fingertips, then you still have hope

If you meet new people with a trace of excitement and optimism, then you sill have hope
If you give people the benefit of a doubt, then you still have hope
If you still offer your hand in friendship to others that have touched your life, then you still have hope
If receiving an unexpected card or letter still brings a pleasant surprise, then you still have hope

If the suffering of others still fills you with pain and frustration, then you still have hope
If you refuse to let a friendship die, or accept that it must end, then you still have hope
If you look forward to a time or place of quiet and reflection, then you still have hope
If you still buy the ornaments, put up the Christmas tree or turkey, then you still have hope

If you still watch love stories or want the endings to be happy, then you still have hope
If you can look to the past and smile, then you still have hope
If, when faced with the bad, when told everything is futile, you can still look up and end the conversation with the phrase..

"..yeah, BUT.."

Then you still have hope
