If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

Thursday's Children

To participate in Thurdsays Children, just click this pic on my blog.
My inspiration for this weeks Thursdays Child post  is short and sweet.

HOPE.

Hope springs eternal and all of that. As long as I hang onto hope, it doesn't matter if I have bad days, or if getting published takes way longer than I want it to. I can always hope for a better day.


As long as I can hope, I believe my dream will come true.

How about you guys?  What inspires you?

  1. Hope is definitely so inspiring! Keep in mind, too, that with PUBLISHING--it is persistence that pays... keeps the hope alive, that even if you aren't there, you can tack a YET on the end and know it will keep happen, just so long as you keep working.

    1. I figure, hope implies a belief in myself that I can do this. As long as I have that belief I'll keep writing, getting better and better and, eventually, this WILL work.

  4. Very simple thought — and definitely inspiring. I guess the stronger version of hope, which I like to use, is "I believe".

    1. That's exactly what I said to someone else! As long as I don't lose my belief in myself, I know this will eventually happen. It's that simple. Of course, sometimes the simplest things are the hardest ones to live by, but I'm feeling really good about things. I have a lot of hope right now. :)

  6. I've always liked the quote: When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

    I'll always listen to that little whisper. :)

  7. Mine is like yours. As long as I have a small bit of hope, I am good.
    Thanks for the reminder!

  8. I so agree with your last line, " As long as I can hope, I believe my dream will come true." And a bit of patience.

  9. Thanks for joining us! Hope and patience are definitely what's needed in this industry. I have a lot of the former but not so much of the latter. If someone says "Hope is a thing with feathers" to me, my usual impulse is to say, "Then let's pluck it." But seriously, hope is the key. Great post!
