Patience as Hope’s Key and Hope to All Else.
I don’t know who I speak for other than I when I say that those moments do indeed exist where it seems almost impossible for us to see the beauty between all the shades of grey in this world. People always ask me why I say things are almost impossible…why I link ‘almost’ to the word ‘impossible’. It’s cause I don’t think anything is in fact completely impossible in this life and so I refuse to make it seem otherwise. All the impossibilities in our lives have become just that because we have chosen to create it within that hopeless light.
I keep asking myself what we need in order to get through these moments without just getting by because a difference does exist between the two. Getting by is wallowing through life, wasting the moments we need to cherish hopelessly. Getting through…well doesn’t it sound like you are trying to get to the light at the end of that tunnel when you’re doing this? To me it does. That’s just it you know, there is a light at the end of every single dark moment, a feeling of warmth in every single storm and a good in every single bad. It’s with the eyes that we choose to view our world that makes the biggest impact on what goes on in both our minds and our hearts. We often forget that what defines us are not the actions, the thoughts, or the words that are carried out through our minds but those that are done so by our hearts. We judge ourselves and those around us more often by their minds than we do anything else. What we are all held accountable for is that which lies within our hearts because of all things, those which reside there can never be altered.
So how is it that we find this light that gives us hope when all hope is lost? I honestly don’t know. I wish I did but I feel like its something that is different for everyone. So to state my opinion will provide no benefits for anyone. One thing I do know though that is true for all is this: patience is what gets us through each and everyday. So on those days where life seems impossible, the patience within us is what we have allowed to be forgotten. Truth be told…that’s something we can’t ever lose because in losing that we lose our ability to hope and without hope, we have nothing else to go on for.
