New Year Expectations




Perhaps like me, each New Year you have an expectation that this year will be different. You look back at the past 12 months with disappointment because goals you set at the start have not been accomplished, hopes you had were not met and dreams you cherished were dashed. When this happens year after year, it is tempting to become cynical, or pessimistic, defeatist or even indifferent. Que sera, sera, you say to yourself (whatever will be, will be!) yet secretly you feel disappointed.


The above is an intro to a post encouraging us to maintain hope. Hope you will pay me a visit and read.




Please don't hesitate to leave a response at my blog site (comments or likes). I look forward to hearing from you.


Best wishes,

I would have to agree with you. I believe most people feel this way about the New year goals they set each year. I think looking back over the twelve months and finding what you are thankful for is a great pick me up. It works for me anyway.

Dear @jonjovi,


Apologies for my belated response!

As you will now have guessed I have not been active at all here at CW for months and I'm ashamed to see that your comment has been languishing here without a response since January.  (smacked wrist in process 😞 )

Thank you for reading and thank you for sharing your thoughts in response, which is much appreciated, despite being so late!

Best wishes,
