Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all. ~ Emily Dickinson

Hope is full of great expectations. At least it is for me.
Hope keeps my attitude in a great place!

For instance, I hope to find some great fabric when I go to the fabric store today. Once I allow myself to hold that hope ticket, my mind will think nothing but positive FABRIC thoughts
until I get there.
Once I arrive, it doesnt matter if that fabric is there or not, the point is, the value of
hope energy prior to that is like high octane fuel. It powers emotions, creativity and ideas. That way, if that fabric I had in my mind is not there, the HOPE ENERGY I have generated will help me change gears when I get there and find a new one and re-group.

The trick is to not linger on the fabric not being there and seeing ALL the possibilities of the fabric that IS there. (insert giggly girl in the store touching all the fabric and wanting it ALL) Linger on the experience.

After all, we should hope for that right?

Hope is not wasted on the heart. To the heart, hope is just yummy desert you can have anytime you want, we just have to convince the mind that HOPE is a desert that never has calories! ~ p.hawkins

Hope is like peanut butter. Spread lots of it and even if there is disappointment at the end, you will still have lots of it sticking to the roof of your mouth! ~ p.hawkins

(Dont ask me where this stuff comes from! I have NO IDEA! hahah)

Poor traumatized froggie! I don't really like frogs, but I'm still glad that nip was an "almost"
