A life without hope is incomprehensible to me. More than once in my past it was hope for something better that kept me plugging away. Knowing that there would be a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long that tunnel looked, was reason enough to carry on.
I am not one to give up on anything, but I am also not one to live in fantasy. I can give up and walk away from something or someone if all hope for a better result eludes me. It takes me a long time to get there, but I can. That kind of giving up seems healthy to me. Not hopeless, just not fruitful.
Every week or several times a week, I hope someone will read what I write. I hope someone will post on what I've written and I hope no one will stop half way through from boredom or because it was just too poorly written to continue.
I hope they might leave here and go to my author's page.
Maybe even "like" it.
I hope that someone might click on the Audio Book Sales to the right of this blog and maybe buy a book.
I hope that anyone who has purchased an audio or ebook which I have written will enjoy it and maybe go back and buy another title for themselves or one they enjoyed for a friend.
I hope that blogging is not always just to clear my head, but actually lead to something else, like book sales! :)
(ebooks are available from either Amazon or Barnes and Noble by searching Jo Heroux, you will find all titles. Those links are available on my author's page)
I hope that you aren't mad now because I just took a cheap shot at self-promotion. I hope that you will pm me any comments you have on anything you may have purchased with both good and constructive critiques. I hope that the next book I write is the best book ever written.
I hope every reader who isn't following, chooses to follow today...right column of page.
I hope that all of my children achieve their dreams and their children become the best at whatever they choose to be as adults. I hope I am healthy until the day I die and can enjoy seeing each of these things happen.
I hope that summer is long and hot and has enough rain to keep grass and flowers green but not so much that we can't enjoy the summer sun, as well.
I hope each of you who are still reading have something to smile about today and come back and visit again, real soon.
