Hope versus Goals

Today I am writing  about hope and goals . Hope is an essential for living  and for me so are goals . I think I have made   hope the same as  goals . But am not sure . When my  goals are not meet I tend to momentarily loose all hope . It is dawning on me that goals are more an earthly thing  and hope needs to be  more spiritual. Up till now  it seems that  when I loss one the  other  gets lost too . This  then becomes deeply discouraging and immobilizing . Somehow I need to figure out how to keep the 2 separate. I guess this means that I have a new "goal"  and that is to "hope"  to keep the 2  separate.

I believe you may be right, goals are man made, and while important do do not the significance that hope does for hope is tied to faith and knowing that all things come in God's time.

I do believe that goals are something we set for ourselves. Hope is something elusive that lives inside us. Goals can be achieved or changed. But hope is something that cannot be touched. To me the two are seperate. I hope you find life easier by keeping the two apart.

Goals are the work of the ego. Hope is the soul. You are an incredible artist and I believe if you follow what your heart dictates it will be Gods work thru you.
Take a breath and trust that you are being guided. I am sure you are on the right path. Now you need to know it.

Hello Julie

The best way that I have found to reach your goals is to write lists each day,(sounds silly but it works).

Some day's you will only be able tick one thing off, and on others you will tick them all off.

EACH DAY YOU WILL 'tick' one of your objectives however small.

Hope will grow as you achieve your goals.

Happy list writing ~ Julie

Love your wonderful artwork. I see goals as more tangible than hope ... but i spend a lot of time hoping I achieve my goals! I like to dream BIG but keep my goals small and manageable - that way I have more hope of achieving them! x

This post reminded me of a favorite quote. When the world says "Give up" Hope whispers, "Try it one more time." Keep your goals and hopes. Put one foot in front of the other and keep on walkin'. It's all we can do as mere mortals. Take care, dear Julie. BTW - your art is MAGNIFICENT! - Kathy
