Hope :: Not Meant to be Alone

First, let me start by apologizing for not having this message out last week! For those of you who look forward to my posts, I appreciate your support and that you read this when you don’t have to! Changing departments and moving to graveyard shift throws off your whole schedule! Second, I want to say:Continue reading “Hope :: Not Meant to be Alone”

Hope :: Losing a Loved One

It’s never easy to lose a loved one. No matter how much time you have to “prepare” or if it’s sudden, losing a loved one is difficult. I’m definitely not the expert on the grief cycle of losing someone – or even something – you love. I can, however, give some tips from my ownContinue reading “Hope :: Losing a Loved One”

Hope :: Your Circle

Who is in your circle? No, I’m not talking about your social circle. Your peer group. Your family. I’m talking about your circle of people that you feel closest to and with whom you can be completely honest. Do you tend to share your secrets with everyone? Do you share with absolutely no one?

Hope :: Keep Pushing Through

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. And again. And again. Life is hard! I don’t care how happy or put-together someone looks.

Just one thought… choice… step… We blame the negative things in our lives on everyone else. And believe me, others DO have some parts of ruining our happiness and disrupting ourContinue reading “Hope :: It Starts With One”

Hope :: Beneath the Mask

You’re the one who walks around every day, a smile on your lips but inside your heart is completely shredded. You’re the one who just, for once, wants to be liked. You want to fit in. You want to be noticed. You don’t actually like the people you spend your time with, but they seemContinue reading “Hope :: Beneath the Mask”

Hope :: Finding Peace in the Madness

Sometimes life sucks. I would be doing you a disservice if I told you otherwise. I could use this blog to tell you that everything is going to be okay always and that we don’t need to worry about bad things happening. But that’s just not true. At this very moment, I am in theContinue reading “Hope :: Finding Peace in the Madness”
