The Year of Hope

It’s the eve of a brand new year, and I couldn’t be any more excited!  I need to be honest with you–2018 was a rough year for me.  I don’t like to share my struggles publicly, but I’ll admit there were days when I lost hope.  That’s the worst thing a person can go through.  Having a rough year doesn’t discourage me from being excited about a new year, though.  2019 is going to be the year of hope!

During some of my darker days this past year when things weren’t going right and I was discouraged, I realized that as long as a person has hope, that person has everything.  I kept repeating to myself something my grandmother, Geraldine, used to say to me–that everything works out in the end.  When things are at their bleakest, we just have to find hope to cling to.

Confucius said it best when he said, “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”  So many people struggle everyday.  Life is hard, but if we have hope we can get through anything.

I wish you all a Happy New Year and a great 2019!  It’s going to be a great one, I can tell! 

Finally, if you need help getting organized, make sure to grab your FREE 2019 digital calendar from Creating Home, Craftman Blossoms.  There’s nothing like starting a new year with a blank slate full of dreams and possibilities.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Have a great New Year!
