Hope for the Hopeful

Yesterday my sister and I were on our way to the supermarket and I discovered (as I made faces in the mirror; Jason Mraz, I love you) that I can make a Mr.Bean face!! ha! Also, yesterday, my aunt and cousins were over and I left them and went to sleep, I think I needed to sleep. I woke up today and I need hope.

I need hope. 

I need to be able to define hope, maybe. Maybe walking down a quiet street with a clear mind should give me hope- but that wouldn't be hope, that would be peace. 
Maybe writing in my book without being conscious of what people might think of me...because they're just so different- maybe I am the one whose different...but that wouldn't be hope, that would be confidence.


I need hope in an environment that lacks familiarity. That lacks definition and lacks things I want it to have. I don't know what I want to do with my life or where I want to end up. I have no idea what my greatest aspirations are. I might tell you big words because I know them, or because saying something is better than just saying "I don't know" when asked what I want to do with my life. No, I don't mean to impress.

I love your honesty here. It's difficult to pin point my greatest aspirations too. And I definitely don't know what I want to do with life. It's difficult to define those things. Especially when life and you are always changing. And being passionate about so many things, it's hard to pick "the one" you know?

I hope this makes sense to someone more than myself. eek!

Be Well...

aw this made me want to cry. I feel exactly the same way. It is hard to be hopeful when you feel like everytime you take one step you fall back to. You will find your way, everyone does eventually. They have to.

Gracie said...

Your posts always make me think and bring so much insight. Hope...such a great word.

I hope you find your HOPE! It's in you. xx

Oh this made me sad....you seem like such an optimistic person though, I'm sure you'll regain your hope soon! Just make sure to keep positive people around you, and give the boot to people making you unhappy or negative! *hug*

I hope you find hope...and I think you will.

You are in a really big turning point right now it seems and it's normal to feel this way. Transition periods are always the hardest...

Feel better soon, dear. Or at least as better as you can feel right now! xoxo

Don't despair, because the moment you despair is the moment you begin to lose hope.
Whenever I feel like the world is a hopeless mess, I try to look up at the sky, take a deep breath, and try to consider life as a whole.
I do hope you find your hope and find your aspirations. And, hey, goals are lovely, but it doesn't make you less of a person if you don't always have them defined.

I can relate to what you feel. So many times I've needed hope, especially in the past two weeks. It's been torturous. The pain in my heart... just... sigh.

But I feel so blessed because I know there's always hope in Jesus, my God. He is my source of strength, and there's always true joy and hope in Him. I always cling on to that, and my days get brighter.

I hope things will get better for you, darling Sara. I'm sure it will. Chin up, dearest! And thank you for sharing those quotes, they're so uplifting! <3 God bless you always.
