Happy 2017!  Isn't it exciting to be at a new beginning of a new year? I hope you had a great Holiday Season and found joy, fun and shared cherished moments.  If this wasn't the case, I am truly sorry.

So many people are ready to jump in with resolutions, and goals and commitments and ready to turn their life around with a new fresh start.  This is awesome!!!

As I grabbed my lunch today, I was thinking on this and picked up a favorite publication I receive.  "Guideposts"  I find this inspiring and uplifting and share my issues with my daughter who passes it on to a friend, who shares and we keep it going.  Today I found an article by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Cofounder of Guideposts and the author of "The Power of Positive Thinking".

This article is called "Let, HOPE, Light Your Way"  a timeless New Year's message from 1987.  And the word "Expectancy" jumped out at me when read Dr. Peale's explanation:

"When you hope -- really hope - - then a magic ingredient comes into play.  The ingredient is expectancy.  Expectancy says 'This desired outcome can happen.  I think it's going to happen.  Right now it may be just a dream, but it's a realizable dream.'  When you start hoping instead of just wishing, then expectation is stirring
in you." 

I suddenly felt compelled to talk about this very subject to remind you how powerful the word HOPE is.  I've heard well meaning people tell someone that you can't get anything by just hoping. Well, obviously, if there is action you can take to move it forward and include hope, yes it can happen!

Listen in so you can hear more about my take on this article and I HOPE you'll share it with someone else that might need to know the power of HOPE.

Passing On A Smile,

Gail
