Hope: Day 7 #100PositiveDays

“In this world you’ve just got to hope for the best and prepare for the worst and take whatever God sends.” – Lucy Maud Montgomery

Hope. Without it, what do we have? If not for hope, life is just a static repetition, day after day.

Hope is especially important when going through hard times. When each day brings new challenges and it feels like things are getting worse, what do we have if not for Hope? One of the hardest things about chronic illness is feeling like you are going backwards, things are getting worse, and you have trouble seeing the brighter days ahead. But Hope is what allows us to push through to the next day and get out of bed in the morning.

“Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have.” – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

What gives me Hope? Animals. Children. Love. The good days. Family. Friends. Nonprofit organizations. Really good food. Random acts of kindness. Goals. Pictures. Everyday heroes. Quotes. Sunsets. RichWithLife.com.

Doc: The Best Medicine.

When I have a bad day
and I’m feeling really low,
nothing goes my way,
and I’m moving really slow.

My joints ache,
my head feels dizzy,
I feel like I might break,
and everyone’s too busy.

When nothing seems funny,
and I want to be alone,
I grab my bunny
a magic trick, little known.

Animals help me out,
they know just what to do,
my rabbit’s really stout,
so I know he won’t fall through.

At the end of the day,
when all I want to do is mope,
through whatever is thrown my way,
my animals give me Hope.

What gives you Hope on your bad days?
