Side one…..In the past I had…..
Hoped that he would change
Hoped that he would notice my pain
Hoped that he would keep his promises
Hoped that he would stop drinking
Hoped he would choose me
Hoped that I would be heard this time
Hoped that the family would be come first
Hoped that this time would be the time
Hoped that this time would be different
Hoped others didn’t notice
Hoped someone kinda would have noticed
Hoped I can fix it
Hoped I was doing the right thing…..knowing it was the wrong thing
Side two……Now HOPE is different for me.
I don’t hope in other people. Or even in myself. Don’t get me wrong, HOPE is all about positive feelings of expectation, trust and desire for a certain thing to happen.
But today my HOPE is in God and trusting His plans for my life. From the many gifts He has given me not only to be my best self but to also live out the 12 steps and glorify Him in all of my affairs.
My journey to serenity continues…
I designed this tattoo on my arm. Faith Hope Love and I choose to continue.
