It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift, life really is. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just a tiny blue dot circling on average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billion more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience wonders of existence, wonders of consciousness…We see the vastness of our universe and our unique place within it. God indeed is great and good. His handicrafts are truly amazing and beyond human imagination. We can still continue to hope in Him and trust Him, for His ways always lead to endless hope.
It is said follow your bliss, the universe will open doors for you, where there were only walls. We must not lose faith in humanity. As long as we love and believe, hope will never break out of our hearts. In tough situations, it’s hard to find hope, and that’s why probably people end their life. But know well that it is all in your heart. The mind may perceive that it is hopeless but the heart will keep on pumping to keep you moving. We must eliminate all the fearsome thoughts in our heads; these are a hindrance for us to hope. And thinking of what other people think about us is one of the most active hope killers. Our brains are weird to find things we’re looking for – if we are cynical or waiting for things to go wrong, and then your life will reflect that. On the other hand, having a positive outlook on life will bring you joy and provide with inspiration, when you least expect it. Therefore we are not product of our circumstances. We are product of our own decisions. The mind is everything. What you think you become.
None of us know what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust, it’s because we have faith and we hope. Of course, there are times when it’s difficult to feel cheery or positive, life can be unyielding. If we are having trouble seeing the cup as half full instead of half empty – life can help you rise above your hardships. The fog may blur the path but the wind will surely blow them all away. Your destination is waiting for you. Don’t lose hope, don’t ever quit.
It’s nice to learn from our past, live for today and hope for tomorrow. What lies behind us or before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Be an optimistic, and you will generate hope, peace and joy. Our life is the fruit of our own doing. We have no one to blame but ourselves.
Let us hence love and strive to be better than we were yesterday and everything around us will become better too. The only person in the world you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday… And so… ‘If not us, who? If not now then, when?’ – John F. Kennedy
“Hope in the Lord all you people, trust Him at all times…” Psalm 62:8
