Choosing hope

Hope is a state of mind. Not the certainty of things being better.

Hope chooses to see the world as wonderful and amazing. And people as extraordinary, mostly.

It is nurtured as we look at beauty and choose to ponder the astonishing resilience of nature.

Hope rises with the sun and lightens our place of darkness. Every day, without fail.

And hope grows as we speak and hear words of kindness, generosity and wisdom.

I’ve found the last few days tough…

Today, I choose hope.
