Where there is life, there is hope

Sometimes life can really knock you down, it feels like there is no way back to the sunshine. It feels like you are stuck in the storm forever and there is little point in carrying on. If you stay in that space for a while, it can get super-difficult to find your courage to push on through. But I hope when you are in this space, that you can find a small light beam within and remember these words; where there is life, there is hope.

It is never too late to ask for help. It is never too late to fight for what is yours. It is never too late to find your little pilot light within and stoke it until it becomes a bigger flame. Even if you can’t see it, know that while your heart beats, it is there, and while it is there, there is always hope. 

There is no place on Earth where it is always stormy, including your mind. Even if you feel hopeless, know that there is still someone out there, who hopes for your best. There are still endless possibilities for your recovery and potential. Hope is always beating on with you. 

When you are tired of the fight, learn to rest. Don’t give in, don’t give up because when you have rested enough, you will find renewed strength you can use to battle on. When all feels lost, know there is a whole world out there for you. Ready for you, when you are ready for it. Keep going, even when you feel you don’t want to, know that the future you will thank you for holding on. 

The world can wait until you are rested and ready. There is no rush, no urgency. The world will never leave you behind while you gather your strength. It has, after all, waited millions of years to meet you here. You have something to give, you are worthy, you are loved, you are here for a reason and hope will never leave you behind. Hope won’t give up on you. 

This is my note to anyone who may need it: where there is life, there is hope. Dig deep and hold onto it, better days are coming.
