A Glimmer of Hope

Most of us have been there, we hit rock bottom with no light in sight,
and we feel so low that up is the only way because it can’t get any worse. Life has its ups and downs and will take you on many journeys. Even in our darkest days, there is some little part of us that keeps shining, I like to call that hope.

We all have different ways of coping with a negative situation in life, some of us may withdraw, some may emotionally eat, and others may seek the comfort of family and friends. Whatever you tend to choose when feeling like this, you most likely choose it because it makes you feel better. Some of us may not choose anything, but we hold onto something dear to our hearts and that is the mere fact of hoping that things will get better.

Hope sometimes is the only thing that we have left and we are so thankful for it because, without it, we can feel so lost. We cling to the idea that the future is bright and unknown, we have hopes that our current situations will change and it is that positivity that keeps us inspired and motivated. Hope is something that we must never let die.

Even when you feel like you have no one or anything left, you can hold onto something that cannot be taken from you and that is hope, a little flame that burns inside of you that keeps going strong and tells you not to give up.

The possibilities of the future are endless and we must keep reminding ourselves of that. The situation that we are in today, we may not be in tomorrow, a day can change so much. Life tends to change when we least expect it, life has a way of throwing us curveballs and roadblocks, yet it also has a way of bringing us blessings and pleasant surprises.

For anyone reading this today, please don’t ever lose the sense of desire inside of you, please don’t ever let anyone or anything dim the light that we call hope, let it shine bright and get you through even the toughest days. Sometimes the greatest thing that we can hear is the notion that life can truly change at any moment and in the meantime, hope will be there right by our sides.

Go For It

Most of us have dreams and aspirations that we hope to achieve at some point in our lives. We have this vision of how we would like life to pan out and it probably hasn’t gone exactly as planned. There are deep desires within us, things that we would like in our lives, that would make us feel whole. There is a burning desire to reach our goals and find happiness.

For some of us, our life goal may be the perfect career, marriage, having children, serving our country, going to college, or just making the world a better place to live in. Whatever our goal may be, we find happiness and hope in trying to pursue it. The end result is hopefully eventually fulfilling our dream.

Sometimes life hands us things that we were not prepared for and many of us get busy in our every day lives and put our dreams on hold. Some of us are waiting for that perfect moment to start working towards our dreams…there is no perfect moment! Start now, your life most likely will not play out as you have envisioned, but it will still be beautiful. If you don’t start today, you may miss the opportunity of a lifetime. Go after what you want in life and don’t stop until you get there!
