Sometimes I hear people say that they have hope things will get better. They hope that times will change, their luck will change, their relationships will change, their body will change, their job will change, their finances will change. Makes me wonder if they are equating ‘hope’ to just a ‘wish, while sitting firmly on their rear-sides.
I think ‘Hope’ is more than a wish. Hope is very dynamic and calls for action along with that tiny idea/desire/wish, call it what you will, ELSE, it will remain a penny thrown behind your back into the wish-pool. I think if one says one hopes for something, one better be willing to expend some elbow-grease towards that hope or might as well call it ‘wool-gathering’.
Folks, if you say you have hope, DO something, anything, everything ever possible . Do not let go, keep on keeping on!
“Hope has two beautiful daughters – their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.” – St. Augustine
