I was in the grocery store the other day and I came across an ornament all by itself. It was simple and inexpensive. It was a chrome-plated word. It said HOPE. I bought it.

Last night I had a dream. In the dream I held the decoration and it came apart in my hands. It really sums up how my life has been the last two years. Hope. Broken.

Of course when I got up it was still in one piece. I have hung it near my computer and this little word is going to help me make some changes this year.

  • I am going to leave my job. They have been stringing me along for over a year now and I see now that they have no intentions of promoting a woman. I am not going to quit until I have other things well in place but I will be quitting.

  • I am going to stop closing doors on relationships. I have been asked out a lot but I always come up with an excuse as to why I should not be dating. I am just going to see where this leads.

Love is a wonderful thing...Faith is really great...Joy is something we all look forward to...Hope is what brings all these together. Just remember there is always Hope. Happy New Year.

I'm trying to pick up my jaw off the floor. You get asked out and you turn them down? Oh my freaking goodness!! I'd do anything for someone to ask me out. (A real person not the couple of internet dates I was on last year, they don't count, they never lead to anything and they suck!)
Just as you say you are going to go out more. I tell myself I need to stay in more. I'm just tired of hoping for someone. It's not happening. I am going to refocus things and stop putting so much emphasis on what's not there. (A relationship)
