Hope Now

Something To Hope For

"We fall down. We get up. We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart. And we fight and we bleed, but all we ever need is something to hope for, something to hope for."

Yellow is Hope

Thanks to my friend, Tiffany, I happened upon a fun little site, Plinky. It is filled with creative writing prompts to help inspire. This evening I decided to give it a try. I searched through various prompts until I found the perfect one:

"What color is your mood right now?"

The answer was surprisingly easy.

My mood is yellow and yellow = HOPE.

Yellow is the canary who sings its song, even when caged or in a storm.

Yellow is the sun rising each morning to remind us of the brand new day ahead. A chance to try again, start refreshed, achieve new goals.

Yellow is the color of the ribbon that is placed on trees in anticipation of a soldier's safe return home.

Yellow is a wish on a shooting star.

Yellow is the beam of the lighthouse directing the ships to safety.

Yellow is the butterfly's delicate wings emerging from a cocoon.

Yellow is hope.

I decided that I will spend the next seven days or so on my blog focusing on the word, hope. I will share songs, quotes, Bible verses and art, because "once you choose hope, anything's possible."  ~ Christopher Reeve
