January 1st...I still believe...

Wednesday, January 01, 2020

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love,
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God,
even when He is silent.
I believe through any trial,
there is always a way
But sometimes in this suffering
and hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter,
to know someone’s there
But a voice rises within me, saying hold on
my child, I’ll give you strength,
I’ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.
I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining
And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there
But I believe in God
even when he is silent
I believe through any trial
there is always a way.
May there someday be sunshine
May there someday be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace….”

Feeling a bit despondent on the First day of this New Year..then I came across this..it reminds me no matter how bad things look or feel.. there is hope...There is always someone somewhere that has it worse than me..

This new year no doubt will bring many challenges.. I am tired physically and mentally and somewhere deep within me I know I have to keep going..have to keep putting one foot in front of the other..I know I cannot keep doing what I am been doing and expect a new result..I must make a new path..and I must make an effort to change because no one is going to do it for me..So...hello to 2020 and goodbye 2019..may we all find peace within ourselves to try to make a better life for ourselves and to bring more happiness and love to others...I have goals for myself and if I named them all it would feel overwhelming. I am going to figure out in the next few days a solid plan to meet them all..not all at once but one by one.
