If all else is lost, hope is the one thing we can always carry, always cling to. Hope can be boosted by outside influences but we are the creators of our own hope. How awesome is that? We may not always be able to choose our circumstances or even our initial emotions but we can always choose to have hope. I think of hope as that small promise to yourself that things always get better. It's such a simple word yet it is the beginning of all possibilites. Nothing is ever started, no dreams are ever realized without the small seed of hope.
Have hope and keep smiling!
