I’ve lost hope before. When I’ve been ill. Alone. Broke. Sad. Angry. Grieving.
I realised recently that as I made my way through those times and came out the other side, even though I may have given up hope at times, it was still there.
It’s really not easy to see when you’re in the thick of it. Maybe you’ve given up. Perhaps you’re in despair. Or hopelessness. I’ve been in all of those too.
Healing ourselves and learning to trust that all will be well can take time.
We are all journeying – no matter how cliqued that might sound! It’s the nature of life and the human adventure.
And perhaps one of the most profound things we learn eventually is that even if all is not well at times, we can walk through the fire and survive, and perhaps even thrive again.
Hope is bigger than each of us and bigger than our challenges. It’s an energy all of its own that lifts us even when we can’t see it.
It helps us move forward.
It carries us.
I got it back and it has grown over time. As my life manifests into more and more of what I wish for, I can feel hope pouring over my life.
If you’re feeling any kind of hopelessness right now, trust that hope is working for you right now.
It is always there.
