When HOPE Waivers...
Life is so crazy. Just when you think you have everything "in order" or that you have found the plan that works, something happens and in a moment everything can be turned upside down.
In those overwhelming times, it is very hard to hang onto hope. As a matter of fact, sometimes it seems utterly hopeLESS. The great news is that hope IS always there...and one thing I know for sure is that it is in these times you need to make the CHOICE to dig through the rubble of your life to find your hope again and then pull it in as your guiding light!
Hope will fuel you.
Hope will empower you to forge ahead!
Hope will shine the light on your new path helping you see it clearly.
Hope will equip you with the new tools and techniques you need to get up again and live the best life possible!
With HOPE, you absolutely CAN do it!
Is it always easy to just choose HOPE? NO it's not. But do you deserve a great life? YES you do! You don't need to be able to do it all at once. You don't need to be able to see everything clearly in an instant. You don't even need to be positive it will work. You just need to keep trying...make it your goal and work a little on it every day.
First, take care of you...get enough sleep, try to get some sunshine and move your body, be honest and open about your struggles, do things that fill you up - even the small things, ask for help...be good to you, this is hard.
Second, make it your goal to find some good in every day and then in everyone when you can. Again, it doesn't have to be huge - the little things count too!
Third, just take it one day or even one hour at a time for a while...that is okay!
Finally, you've got to keep moving forward...one baby step at a time if that is all you can do. Eventually you will move through the muck and each step will get easier and easier.
HOPE is the goal. Choose it, Fight for it, Hang on tightly to it! You CAN Make it...you can turn your life upright again! I know that you will have the best life possible because you will be empowered, you will be equipped and you will be filled with HOPE!
Remember...you are NOT alone!
