Only in the darkness can you see the stars.
: Martin Luther King Jr.
We struggle day in and out. But these dark times just test our limits. They let us know how far we can go. They teach us how to breakthrough. The most precious things we have are faith and hope because if we have these then we can turn the sands into oceans. Those temporary testing times don’t last for long. Life tries things to see if they work. We become strong and fervent and eventually emerge as better persons.
Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.
: Emily Dickinson
We have been in the land of the living for so long and we’re still living the moments. And for all this time, hopes have always been with us and all we should do is keep them high. When we have nothing, we have hopes. When the sun goes down, the stars come out. The sun burns to be bright. To be as bright as the sun or shine like the stars, we need to burn like them. Isn’t it?
I find many people who are contented with whatever they have and never lose their hopes and cravings. They know they have suffered and now they are geared up to be challenged. They know the importance of a smile and hope. For me, they are my role models.
To get somewhere really high, we need to be hopeful and we need to experience new stuff. That ‘stuff’ here refers to the testing times. No pain, no gain. Many at times, we need to forget the past and just remember the significance of the present. We have to take risks, only then can we be open to new opportunities. Most importantly, after taking those risks, we need to keep our hopes, high and dreams, big.
You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.
: William Faulkner
With hopes, come dreams. We have ambitions and desires and sometimes, instead of taking steps, we move back. But why? Why is it that we tend to lose our zeal and and hankerings? Is it because of the lack of hopes? Can’t we forget everything and just move blindly, if needed, towards our dreams and goals?
When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.
: Pittacus Lore
So let’s get enthusiastic and walk on the path of our dreams. Let’s be happy and satisfied with whatever we have. Let’s have faith on ourselves and be strong enough to face every challenge. Let’s be excited to live every day. Let’s have fun and let’s not find occasions to celebrate. Let’s celebrate happiness. Let’s be hopeful!
