The Hope Garden

Any morning can have hope. Any person can have hope. Getting the two to align is the real trick.

I have spent many mornings running into things, feeling overwhelmed, wondering what happened to my hope. Wondering if I could manufacture it from a memory that I had of hope from the night before.

The answer is complicated. I can’t manufacture hope ever because that is not it’s nature. Balance is a fertile garden for hope and balance comes from accepting the world as it is. Too much time, not enough time. Things stopping me, people helping me. If I don’t see these things and accept them as they are in happiness then I will never have the balance needed to grow hope.

Today my answer to the question “How are you this morning?” is “Balanced and hopeful”.
