Hope Means…

I got the inspiration for this post from my friend Christina’s blog; Hopeful Parents.

I want to share this quote from Maria Robinson with you,

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

There are so many, many sayings about each new day; the most overused being “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” Ugh. The clichés get so repetitive that we lose the message. There is a good reason for the flood of ‘it’s a new day’ quotes – they contain wisdom that is terribly hard to remember when you are tired, weary, and stressed. We forget that lifetimes are simply an accumulation of thousands of small daily acts. We make choices every day and they add up. Hope, the belief that our best expectations are attainable, can drive those choices that allow us to write the endings we want.
