Some days it is all you have…sitting in the corner, begging you to see it, hope doesn’t go away even when you forget about it.
We have had our darkest moments, times where you just can’t see over the horizon, the only thing we see is pieces of ourselves scattered on the floor. The many parts of us that respond to those moments usually flood us with emotion and thoughts. Once the flood subsides there is usually clarity – your gather yourself back together, try your craftiest to glue back what you were able to collect and move on.
You take one step forward, with the hopes that this will not happen again. I also walk away hoping that whatever lesson there was in the folds of this experience has been learned. Somehow, we all gather the strength to face another day, to dare and challenge our world once again to put us to the test.
Hope is that thing that makes you abandon logic and get you onto some precarious situations. But just like the best friend sitting in the jail cell next to you, hope pulls you out of your darkest thoughts. Any sometimes tells a good joke.
Against all odds we have maintain our path, whether your path has an enormous amount of hills and valleys – those moments when the valley dips too far down it is hope that helps us look up to the valley.
I am certain we have all been there at some point or another, where life has dug is a hole that we thought we weren’t going to get out of. We look around and seek out an answer, sometimes the answer is to ride out the storm and at other times the answer is to take the bull by the horns and command over the situation. Be inspired by your anguish; let that fuel you from a place of despair to a place of answer. The experiences that you have had so far have given you the tools and wisdom to tackle whatever is in front of you, staying humble will allow you to obtain a new tool form this experience and looking up will give you the energy you need to survive it all.
Don’t let go of hope, don’t be fooled by false hope either. We seek out certain goals in our lives to fulfill our needs – for example companionship. Don’t put your hopes and dreams into someone that doesn’t have the same hopes and dreams as you. With all things, whether love, career, plans or goals – let your brain examine the situation first. Your heart will fool you, but your head is still there – lead with your head and then allow your heart to get involved.
Let’s all move forward together, articulating our goals and putting our hopes into our dreams. There is so much for us to look forward to, this time of the year puts us all in a reflective spirit – we appreciate the lessons even though they were painful at the time, we look forward to what is to come and of course are still tending to some of our wounds. I am rooting for you! Big Hug!
