So many reasons to be hope-full

By Cathryn Wellner / December 9, 2015

Humans can be scrappy and perverse, but they are also kind, generous and loving. We need each other. May your life be filled with love.

Although it’s been nearly two weeks since I posted anything here, new people keep finding their way to the blog. Welcome, and may you find many reasons to be full of hope in spite of what can seem like a world gone mad.

Since I began this blog in May 2011, hundreds of thousands of people have stopped by. I’m so grateful to you all for sharing this journey with me.

A partial goodbye

As 2016 approaches, I am turning my attention to the long list of writing and photography projects pulling at me like a dog tugging on a chew toy. Given the realities of the 24-hour day, I won’t be adding new posts here but will leave the blog for you to wander around in when you need a boost.

I will still add to the Facebook and pages, with links to inspiring stories to make you smile, cheer and believe that change is not just possible, it’s happening. So this is only a partial goodbye to a project I started several years ago with the intent of finding 1,001 reasons for hope.

This is #1,329, and I can honestly say casting my net for reasons for hope has been like getting a vaccination against despair. I still see what’s wrong in the world, but I see how much more is right. We have to do something about the former. We need to celebrate and shout about the latter.

My favorite places to find hope

When you start looking for hope, you find it everywhere. But I do have a small list of places I turn to on a regular basis. I didn’t know about any of them until I started this hope journey. Now they brighten my life every week. Here they are:

You will find me here

As I turn to the delicious projects demanding attention, you will find me regularly in several places. Drop by. Say hello.
