So much hope and joy is involved in becoming a new parent. As time passes, parents hold on to that hope and love to get through the realities of watching children grow up and become independent. Eventually, you have to let go of your hopes as a parent and embrace the hopes of the your children so that they can be who they want to be rather than who you want them to be.

  1. Trudging along – so low to the ground. Dirt in the face, stepped on, blown around by life’s changing winds. But caterpillars persevere because of their hope for tomorrow – that tomorrow will be the day their transformation is complete and they will be able to spread their wings in all their glory and fly.

  2. Start daydreaming, become enamored by possibility, and tumble into love with the whims of your heart. Hope for all that is impossible, for in that hope is a spark of a reality, which may become a flame of possibility. Let your imagination light up with sparkling moments of fanciful chances taken. If we never dare to hope we learn to strive for less than what we are capable of doing.

  3. Hope leads to positive thinking. When we have hope, expectations and desire are developed. Expectations and desire cause our focus to point in a certain direction. We began to work toward expected goals so our desires can be fulfilled. Without hope we have no expectations and desires do not exist.
