Contemplative Monday



"Hope is important because it can make the present moment
less difficult to bear.
If we believe that tomorrow will be better,
we can bear a hardship today."

  3. I don't really like hope much. Not just because of what happened last year, but I was always like that. Don't know why.

    1. I do understand what you are saying, Inger. Putting too much hope into anything can be a dangerous thing indeed and only setting ourselves up for future disappointment. But, I do believe that having hope in a measured way/realistic way can get us through some obstacles in life.

  4. You photo gives me hope of spring! I woke up to snow falling again today. Fortunately it didn't last long! I think hope is a very important feeling; it carries you through dark times.
