"The power of hope upon human exertion and happiness
Hope can be a difficult thing to find in trying times. We are living in a complicated world. It is a world where we are faced with personal as well as global uncertainties.
There are many days when I have to dig very deep to find hope, but I know that hope is my source of strength.
Hope sustains me when I feel that things around me are falling apart.
Meditation and prayer give me the strength to wrap myself in a cloak of hope, to awake to the power of hope that is within me always.
"Hope is being able to see that there is light
despite all of the darkness."
Even those who are suffering the most unimaginable pain and suffering can find hope. It seems to arise from the depths of the darkness and bring them back up into the light.
Even on the days that I struggle the most I remind myself of the struggles of others.
The future may look frightening, but hope is like the beautiful wildflowers that grow along the edge of a dark woods.
The beauty will sustain us through the darkness. The beauty will still be there when we emerge on the other side.
I have been thinking about the path I want my blog to take as I return to more consistent postings, and I know that I want to return to some of my earlier goals. Each Monday I am planning to go back to my Inspiration on a Monday postings. You can find more of them here.
