I truly believe that we cannot move forward in life without hope. What is hope? Hope is a feeling, its a need; a wish.. hope is something that drives us to move through whatever it is we are struggling with inside. Hope to me = Goodness and we all know that goodness is a feeling of content.
For me, I hold onto hope everyday, and it holds onto me, or I would not be where I am today without that. Everyday I hold the hope that I will find one more step closer in my healing. I hold the hope that tomorrow I wont go through the little things that I go through; those little things that hold onto ME instead of me holding onto IT.
I don’t think a day goes by for me that I don’t look for hope to move through the day, and to find something that will give me more hope, and “hopefully” turning into Goodness. I just don’t think there is life without hope. What happens to a person that has no hope? they die! they may not die physically, but their soul is dead.. that is why “hope anchors the soul” .. it’s the only thing that keeps us going.
I will go to bed with hope tonight, and I will wake up with hope.. whether it happens the way I want it to happen or not, I still hold onto it.. because for me, that is my ONLY way to “goodness”
