Dare to Hope

This is becoming one of my new years resolutions for 2011. I am a cynic and I hate it. It keeps me from accomplishing great things and from being happy for those around me. The doubts always seem to creep in.  Some of it is related to a deep down jealousy and some to a fear of rejection/failure. So I hold back and make snide, hurtful remarks.  But the goal is to have a more positive outlook. To try things and have experiences. Even if I fail, I am sure something positive will come from putting myself out there. I will be able to grow, rather than remain stagnant and will hopefully have a positive influence on those around me as well. I want the hope and joy to be contagious. I will need some encouragement and reminders along the way, but I am striving to dare to hope.
