HOPE Never Dies


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!

Hello to all the readers and writers out here! I am Meher Gandhi. I am a dreamer and a wanderer, dreaming of a world made of words and wandering in a land of my own scribblings. I am constantly scribbling my reveries and all the secrets I unearth while living, sometimes it’s on paper, most of the times, it’s mental notes. WordPress is a great platform to showcase the art of writing be it on the spot or else. I am loving this work of writing blogs, reading your blogs, commenting on them, receiving the likes, comments and valuable suggestions. It is all so fun! I am a teenager who loves to read and write. I am a positive person and so are my scribblings. If you want to connect with me then, head over to the contact page in the “my pages” section! Would you like to join me in for a walk in my land of scribblings? With love, Meher.
