I believe


...that we might be on the right track although there will undoubtedly be several derailments before the next destination comes into view.

Thankful that this current train wreck can be fixed, if by no other means than belief, works for me. Negativity surely won't pull this train out of the station and I believe, kind of, that media, pundits and beasties will grow up and offload a bit of the nastiness so prevalent in this past decade.

I believe that stirring minds and mapping new ideas will foster belief and create a new track which will straighten as we go and will remain in place without a need to reshuffle the ties.

I believe that positive outlooks can last throughout the year.

Probably.

I want to believe, you know.

Happy and Prosperous 2009 to each of you!

I believe... is the prompt issued by Sunday Scribblings. A great meme with a weekly prompt - be sure to visit and play along!

I too believe that next year there will be more to believe in. Or something like that.

Ghandi said, "When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always".
I think that's positive belief in action.

I want to believe too ... and when enough of us DO believe, miracles happen. Thank you!
Hugs and blessings,

At least we have taken the first positive step. There are a few things that must be addressed immediately if civilization is to survive - such as climate change brought about by our dependence on fossil fuels, where there is actually a point of no return. My optimism says that we are intelligent enough tackle tough problems.

Happy New Year!

Very well-said. I hope you're right. Thanks for stopping by my journal with encouraging words.

Very relevant for the current economic mess we are in! Let us ALL believe that we can make it through because that's what it will take!

Sometimes if you believe hard enough everything works out. So always keep believing.

Beautiful Witch said...

I love this line: I believe that stirring minds and mapping new ideas will foster belief and create a new track which will straighten as we go and will remain in place without a need to reshuffle the ties.

Ah yes, the stirring of minds! Thanks for sharing. :)

I like your common sense here! And your train metaphor works well!

I also read your winter American Sentences. Love them! They reflect exactly how I feel!

I'll happily go along with all that - and a great new year to you!

Maria said...

agree completely! as that saying goes: sometimes we win, sometimes we learn. these are definitely learning times, leaner times.

It's good to be positive, but I feel that all this hope in a man will falter. He's just a man. History shows the dangers of euphoria based in the persona of a charismatic individual.
