Star light star bright, first star I see tonight…

When you are creeping closer to sixty that fifty, hope has a different meaning than when you were young.  Looking back for some is painful, hopes and dreams slipped through our fingers, often out of our control.  But somehow, after the broken dreams have burned to ashes we become like the Phoenix, and a different person emerges.  Sometimes that person may pull us down a road we don’t want to travel. Then the cycle repeats it’s self again and again, even when we don’t want it to.


A wise friend once told me “If you always do what you have always done you will always get the same results.”  To change those results you have to realize that you are NOT the same person you were before your world fell apart.  You have learned what you DON’T want, so look for what you really do.  Believe in yourself.  Perhaps try the H.O.P.E. plan of action.

Heart – Be brave and knock down the wall around your heart (One brick at a time)
Open – Be open to new ideas, dream a little
Possibilities – Thinking ahead, seeing different options, open minded
Endless – Realize this is a big world.  Think outside of your little box!

Hope can be renewed if you just believe in your new self, wiser for the years you have traveled the road of life.  With a new year approaching it is a great time to make a difference in YOUR life.  Giving up is not an acceptable option!

Go ahead... wish upon a star!
