I’m grateful for hope. Hope is the candle I choose to light. Even in my darkest hours, hope was the flicker that kept me going. She is the whisper that tells me to keep moving when I have no idea what is around the next bend. I know many people are feeling depleted and stretched to the max. Some don’t even know what the next hour will hold. Hope is what happens when we align our energy with love, abundance, and peace even for a few seconds, even for the time it takes to take a deep breath in and exhale it out. I’m grateful I do see and feel the hope, because it is how I know that everything I’m doing in this moment is worth it, and that brings me peace.
Today, I commit to focusing on hope. One of my favorite ways to do this is to light a candle. There is something about watching the flame dance that soothes my soul. When I’m struggling, I like to imagine that light inside of me working it’s way through the dark places and shining light on what needs to be seen. What old patterns of thought am I holding onto? Knowing I have a light to shine brings me hope that I will make it out of any internal darkness. No darkness from the outside world can hold me down if I keep my light of hope ignited inside me.
