Hopes for the New Year 2021

I am filled with hope for the coming year.  Last year at this time who knew how unusual 2020 would become?  It seems hope may blossom in the face of challenges.  I am practical to a fault at times, and am guilty of placing the lack of control hope offers beneath the power of taking action.  But what happens when action is limited by circumstances beyond control?  I think that’s called 2020!  Maybe hope can be used not as a substitute for action, but as a tool to direction action.  Hmmmm….

I have created two alphabetical listings – one for sensations I experienced in 2020 that I would like to leave behind, and one for hopes for 2021 – a tall order, but isn’t that what hope is about?
