Read or watch news right now and there may not be a lot to feel encouraged by. It doesn’t even seem to matter where you get your news from - unless you’re getting it from GoodGoodGood
- it’s all pretty much the same. It’s a bummer. It’s clear the ‘positive vibes only
’ trend sweeping social media posts has not overtaken news.
And yet, why do we keep going? Why do we get up each day?
I think it’s because we’re holding onto hope.
Sometimes it’s not easy. It can feel like trying to actually see air. Or smell change. Cure cancer or homelessness, split the atom. Or explain the reason sunrises and sunsets are so magical (they just are!). Hope is a challenge we rise to, nonetheless.
Again and again. Even when we get slightly off balance, the wind feels as if it will blow us over or the path seems unclear.
