There is always hope no matter the circumstances.
You see, it does not matter where you are in your life journey. And it’s irrelevant how good or bad you feel at the moment. What you need to remember is that there is always hope! And I am saying this from my own experience. Want to listen to my story? Here it is.
It was around 5 am.
The bitter cold weather was intruding through the old and worn-out door of my room. And to add insult to injury, there was no power. I was somehow trying to keep the dark away with the weak flame of a broken candle.
My younger brother had been sick all night.
And, then, all of a sudden he started shivering. He asked me to give him a tablet with some warm water. “Warm water?” I asked myself. How will I arrange for warm water? The fact of the matter was, that the gas cylinder had been empty since last evening. And so, I had no choice except to try to warm some water on the flame of the same broken candle that was fighting hard to dispel the darkness.
Damn you poverty!
Chill outside, empty gas cylinder, my brother shivering with cold—can’t tell you how helpless I felt at that moment. In fact, it made me feel so hopeless that I cried. Helpless and confused, I handed over some water (which was barely warm) and a tablet to him.
It’s been almost 9 years since that happened.
Today when I ponder over the yesteryears of my life to figure out what held me together, I get only one answer.
Hope that things will improve, that things will get better.
I weathered poverty, hunger, ridicule, and negativity in the early years of my life. those were the days when I had nothing except hope.
Days after days passed by. I struggled hard to move forward in life. And I did succeed against all odds.
I want you to remember that it doesn’t matter how hard your life may appear at the moment, you can succeed only if you just “press on.”
Be hopeful that things will get better because if you lose hope, you lose everything–and meanwhile, keep learning and educating yourself to make your dreams come true.
Your life may appear hopeless at present, but if you look a little closer, there’s still HOPEless in it.
