Hope Believe Accept

Hope Believe Accept

Hope- Against all logic, against all odds, we still hope.

Believe- That anything is possible; miracles happen everyday.

Accept- Accept the loss and learn to live with it.

This blog was created to help me deal with the sudden, unexpected death of my loved ones. I lost my mother June in January 2016, and my good friend Tommy in March 2016. Just as I was starting to accept their deaths, I lost my brother Tommy in July 2018, and my sister Junie in September 2018. Dealing with the death of four loved ones in such a short period of time is overwhelming, shocking, traumatic, shattering and heartbreaking.

Journey with me as I discuss the Hope that I had that they would not die.

Grieve with me with when you hear the words, “I believe they are in a better place”.

Grow with me as I learn to accept their deaths.

I hope that my site will help you in your journey of honoring the life and memory of your loved one, and learn to live with the love they left behind.

Take a moment to drop me a line.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
