Let us begin with my little hope. I always thought
(hoped) that if I had a daughter, I would name her 'Hope.' Yeah you are right, hope is good and can be your friend; but as long as you keep your thoughts about her right. Why do I say that? Because when 'truth' is a friend of hope, hope becomes your friend too. True hope reflects your negatives and discovers ways to defeat it. On the contrary, for instance, when someone says after a date 'I'll call you later" - especially when they know they wouldn't; that seeds false hope and drains your energy. Therefore false hopes gate your optimism and not only limit your inner strength, but shut down your natural system to accept pain and learn from it. Life is a crossword puzzle, and when you reach those specific crossroads; there comes a time when everyone gives up just for a second, and that beam of light which lifts you up - that power within you, and that inner voice that speaks to you reigns. Any Guesses what that is?
As long as you hope you live. Without hoping I could never be who I am, because hope gives you dreams, and dreams give you inspiration to achieve. During painful times when all doors seem shut and when you have no idea how your next minute is going to be; simply hope. Hope is a beginning; a positive pathway to life, happiness and success. There is a magical nature about hope; it fortifies your belief system which is your personal guide to life. A reinforcement of positive thoughts cascading to help you handle your pain; your guilt; your helplessness; your heartbreaks, and your moments of weakness.
Please stop by your gas station called 'hope' and fuel your perseverance to achieve all your dreams and appreciate life with all its beauty. Just begin today with hope that every decision or choice you make, and with every relationship you commit yourself will take you where your heart is. On that, you're happy and your mind is at peace.
I love hope. I love it with every breath of mine, not only because she is my yet to be born daughter, but also because she graces my life with overwhelming boldness.
