January 19. “Hope is the anchor of the soul, the stimulus to action, and the incentive to achievement.” (Anonymous)
On my blog about my Journey toward better health, I wrote today about how some call this day “Blue Monday”. It is a day when the Holidays are behind us, the weather is bad, and there are bills to pay. You can read about my thoughts on the subject there. Long story short, I am not participating!
Today my heart and my head are full of hope. I made up my mind that I was not going to allow external forces to influence me to feel any differently. Instead, I embraced hope.
As this quote says, hope is anchoring my soul. I know that the weather isn’t great now, but it will be again soon. The days are getting longer, and we are already 1/3 of the way through the season of Winter.
My reflection today is short because I want to get back to action. My reflection is that action is the best way to fan the spark of hope in my life. Today I am about action!
