What is hope? Dictionary.com defines it as “
I think there’s two kinds of hope – hope and Hope.
So hope, to me, is like wishing for something. It’s the feeling that you want something to happen. You want ice cream, you hope there’s ice cream in your freezer. You want your favorite sports-team to beat your rivals, you hope they play well. You want to go into the city to sight-see, you hope it won’t rain. It’s like closing your eyes and making a little wish.
On the other hand, Hope is something that keeps you going. Hope is holding onto a faith that just makes the not-so-great times worth it. It’s not a “no” and it’s not a “yes” – it’s a maybe. And there’s some kind of peace in maybe, isn’t there? It’s like flipping a coin – when it’s in the air, you suddenly know what you’re hoping for.
One of my favorite things in life is when you can see sunshine through the trees. You know what I mean?
That’s what Hope is to me. Hope is that sunlight that shines through, despite the trees blocking its path. Hope is feeling that sunlight on your face while you’re driving. Hope is wanting something so bad and believing that in some way, it’ll happen.
Hope is believing in fate, in destiny, in something bigger than yourself.
