2016 A Year of Hope

Jan 14, 2016 01:31PM
[dropcap]A[/dropcap]nother year of life has passed and the reality...we all lived it one day at a time. Our past now becomes our learning tools as a guide to our future. Today is all we really have;

nothing beyond that is guaranteed. Our future yet unknown—I pray about positive change, and I hope.

My hope is spiritual growth for myself, my family and all human beings. My wishes extend to the sick and suffering that they may nd hope. For the politicians and world leaders to nd hope in peace rather than war. My hope for awareness and change to spread, when it comes to plastics and the environment. I hope corporations develop a moral and social conscience with our health in mind, and on their own, to commit to eliminating the toxins that have been incorporated into our food chain.

I hope for peace on earth.

Sounds like an overwhelming task, “peace on earth,” yet I hope in the process shared in the book “How Google Works.” The company’s guide to goal setting: Set them high, dream big, then dream a little bigger. An example of this is when they announced to the world they were going to map it—the world that is. Every street, every village, every neighborhood, and to top it off in 3-D! An over- whelming task at the time, and people laughed. But it is now a reality. So when they told us in the future there would be driverless cars, cars that in reality will not need a human to personally navigate streets, neighborhoods, stop signs, etc., we believed it would one day become a reality. If these things are possible...why not peace?

Where and how do we start this process? One person at a time, one day at a time, one act at a time, one contribution at a time. What will be your contribution? That is up to you. Spreading the acts of peace is a start. Talking and believing is the foundation.

In peace, love and laughter,
