Wishing you all, my ATS family, a new year with HOPE!
Quite some time ago, when I living in a big city, I thought the city was the lonliest place of all on Holidays -- surrounded by people and yet feeling
isolated. Sometimes I'd choose those times to commune with nature. Had no money for travel, so I would visit different parks, sometimes packing
a lunch -- anything to break the rhythm of my thoughts.
Then I realized that no matter how bad I thought things were, hell, at least I had a small place to live, and I had two pairs of shoes, and I wasn't
starving. I starting volunteering for shelter duty and other related things during the holidays, and you know what? no........ what?
I started to get a bit of hope, and I think hope is contagious.
From then on, I decided to get out, do some good somewhere, make my miniscule changes in the fabric. Sometimes I just chose to be on my own.
Thanks to everyone who posted..... restoring our faith in the goodness of people, and sharing of yourselves. We are not truly alone, unless we
Hope someone infects you with hope too!
