The power of hope

 Hope © Pop Nukoonrat | Dreamstime.com

The times you are least sure it’s going to be all right are when you most need to hear it.

“It’s going to be all right.” Even if the words anger you because they fly in the face of the reality you can see and feel, somewhere deep inside is a spark of hope.

We need to know that someone, even if it’s the single soul who speaks the words, believes it’s possible even in all of this that it’s going to be OK.

“It’s going to be all right.” The words are a reminder, a lifeline, a promise, that others got through stuff like this and survived — changed, perhaps, but all right.
