What I’m Hanging Hope On Today: Things change, they always do. I know at times this can seem threatening because it often appears well beyond our control. This lack of control is an illusion, illusions being nothing more than poorly chosen perspectives on any situation. The word situation itself can refer to both one’s attitude as well as the frame of reference any problem is being examined in.
This is where hope comes in, looking at any situation from a bird’s eye view perspective will both give a realistic sense of the scope of the problem as well as providing additional insight into the circumstances surrounding and supporting it. Although the problem itself may seem insurmountable, it’s only ever as strong as it’s weakest links.
If whatever you are facing seems too much to handle, it’s simply because you are trying to take on too much at once. The problem is no more supernatural than you are. It has weaknesses just like you do. That’s why there is always wisdom in hope. If you can’t do it the first way, there is always another one.
It’s gonna be okay. What do you say?
