Is There Light At The End Of Your Tunnel?
Some may say, “Yes, I know there is. . . but right now it doesn’t feel like it.”
Others sadly mutter, “Nope! There is no hope for me. My situation is hopeless!”
Is your definition of hope based on relationships, finances, health and wellness, education or. . .?
The 1829 Webster’s Dictionary defines hope as:
“A desire of some good, accompanied with at least a slight expectation of obtaining it or a belief it is obtainable!” Webster continues, “Hope differs from “wish” and “desires” in this, that it implies some expectation of obtaining the good desired, or the possibility of possessing it.”
“An example of hope is when a person believes his life situation will improve and his run of “bad luck” will end,” Webster concludes.
The word “believes” seemed to almost jump out at the example of Webster’s definition. Sometimes we must “train” our mind and emotions, to accept the intention to “believe their life situation will improve.”
Deciding to “believe our life situation will improve” is the first and often hardest hurdle of this challenge. But it is worth the effort.
My hope is to encourage many people who are struggling to get through difficult times.
