Hope

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” – Thich Nhat Hanh⁠

⁠I sent this to someone recently who’s been having a difficult time. They responded by saying, “hope isn’t going to change my situation.”⁠

⁠Here’s the thing about this quote & hope…⁠

⁠I can only speak from personal experience, as I’ve been through tough times in my life, at times even hitting the proverbial rock bottom, as I’m sure some if not all of you have as well. When I was without hope that things would get better things got real dark, real fast, and they definitely didn’t improve. ⁠

⁠I had to work very hard to make my life better, nothing happened without great effort and creating opportunities for myself. It’s not like I was sitting around all day full of hope and things just fell on my lap, but having hope that things could get better is what got me off my bum and back out into the world, creating opportunities for a better life.⁠

⁠In my experience, hopelessness causes more hopelessness, and without hope, we crumble.⁠

⁠Hope indeed can make hardships easier to bear. 2020 has been full of hardships but I am hopeful that we are finally going in the right direction, not without the need of hard work, dedication, and unity, but I truly believe change is in our sights. ⁠

⁠Sending hope your way today, happy Friday!

My Hope For You

It’s Friday & life’s been a real doozy, for almost everyone I know, so I don’t want to talk about anything heavy today. I don’t want to add to the noise. It’s already too loud, too sad, too stressful, too cluttered. I don’t want to give advice, just for this one day.  ⁠

⁠Just for today, all I have to say is I hope you have a great day. I hope you have a great weekend. I hope whatever your carrying isn’t too heavy. I hope you find some release, even if it’s only from one thing that’s been grinding you down. I hope someone or something makes you smile and brightens up your day. I hope you catch a break. I hope something wonderful happens to you. I hope you get good news. I hope you find some healing from something that’s been bringing you pain. I hope you spend time doing something you love with someone you love and I hope that, even if it’s just for a moment, you’re able to let everything else go.⁠

⁠I hope you’re well, and I care about you, even if I don’t know you – Sending love ❤️⁠

⁠Happy Friday!
