No matter how frightened and discouraged I may become about the future, I look forward to it. In spite of everything I see all around me every day, I have a shaky assurance that everything will turn out fine; and I don’t think I’m the only one. Why else would the phrase “Everything is alright” ease a troubled place in so many of us? We just don’t know, we never know, yet we have so much faith. We hold our hands over our hurts and lean forward. It is how we keep on, this kind of hope.
I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I’m not naive. I know what it feels like to be completely broken and I’m all too familiar with what it feels like to hurt. I know what it’s like to see something funny and not laugh. I’ve been taken advantage of and used. My feelings have been completely disregarded, but I still believe all people are good at heart, and my trust has not diminished. To be honest, I hope it never does.
Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason.
I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be, for I have also learned from experience that the great part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.
i think we spend too much time wondering why we’re not good enough. we waste too much time putting ourselves down that we don’t ever stop to see that we are good enough. we spend too much time with our heads down and hearts closed and never get a chance to look up from the ground and see that the sun is shining and tomorrow is another day
When you’re young, everything feels like the end of the world, but it’s not, it’s just the beginning. You might have to meet a few more jerks, but one day you’re gonna meet a boy who treats you the way you deserve to be treated, and it’s going to feel like the sun rises and sets with you.
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
Hope is not a dream but a way of making dreams become reality.
Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by [ tired ] and [ discouraged ] people who kept on WORKING.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.
Never let go of hope. Someday you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself…How did I get through all of that?
You’ve gotta have hope. Without hope life is meaningless. Without hope life is meaning less and less.
