If we have hope, we have everything. I firmly and wholly believe that. I can reference a number of situations. The first thing that comes to my mind is what my life is at the moment; essentially I have no idea what the future will bring. I am trying to prepare for it as much as I can, but at the same time live in the moment (something I have found extrenely difficult). What I do have though is hope; hope that the future will turn out the right way for me and that my hard work will pay off. Hope to hold on to.
You, as I, am thinking, well not everything in life is that deep. No, it's definitely not. Hope translates smoothly to everyday situations. Think about it, or even keep track, of how many times you say hope or think "I hope..." throughout the day. i.e. hoping there is no traffic on the way to work, hoping you make enough money that week/month to pay the bills, hoping you walk into the store and find that stunning pair of shoes you have been looking for, hoping that what you do and how you act makes a positive impact on other individuals and on the world. I'd love to hear what you all think about this word, this post etc. What do you hope for? How does it influence your life and your attitude?
