Hope is ever powerful. Poor is the one who is living without it and rich is the one who is filled with it. We can have it, we can need it and we can give it. Hope can be granted in an instant and removed in a flash. When administered externally it can be deceptive and false, but when it is consumed internally it can cure the deepest wounds.
Hope is not an extra $20 on a welfare cheque, it is a job and all of the possibilities that come with it. It is not the instant relief of a pain killer, it is the uncovering of the problem so a plan to go forward can be made. Hope is believing, it is knowing in your heart that tomorrow will be better. It is always knowing that you have something to give, that you have control of you.
We can wish for a cure, for better financial circumstances, for world peace, but that is wishing and it fills your mind not your soul. True hope needs believing, you need to believe you are on the road to wellness, to better days, to internal peace. A wish can be granted in the form of instant gratification…Look, here is an unexpected hundred dollars but wishing is an I want where hope is everlasting.
My desire is to build a blog that inspires hope. I want this to be a place filled with possibilities and positive energy. Some days I may write a mini novel, other days just a thought. But I am building, and that fills me with hope.
