‘God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us - in the dreariest and most dreaded moments - can see a possibility of hope.’ Maya Angelou
Sometimes hope eludes us and it’s hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel - we feel overwhelmed and the future stretches bleakly before us. We find ourselves questioning the whole basis of our lives and whether there is any meaning or purpose in them.
We can however coax hope from the embers of despair if we want to. We can start by reminding ourselves that the light is always there, even though we can’t at the moment see it. There is never a time when the dawn doesn’t break or winter doesn’t come to an end. Hope is like the bird singing in the dark night, sensing the approach of the dawn light.
When we accept that light is the other side of darkness, we are more able to face the challenges ahead. Nothing stays the same forever - things change, we change.
Affirmation for the day I know that there is always hope, however challenging the road ahead
