The Meaning of Hope:
We all have those moments in our lives that make us feel like there is no hope. Whether it’s a break-up with a significant other, a frustrating job situation, or a life threatening illness, the feeling of helplessness can be devastating. For some, this is when religious faith is formed; others, it may be the strengthening of family ties. The goal, however, remains the same – to preserve hope.
The Hope Soul Bracelet is to be worn as a constant reminder that these turbulent times will pass. Being able to look down at your wrist and see the word “hope” provides a moment of clarity, helping you to stay focused on your path. Life goes on; time carries with it the ability to heal and soon, new opportunities and fortune will unveil themselves to you.
Keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are. Remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be. The challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you.
A Story of Hope:
One of my fondest memories as a child is going by the river and sitting idly on the bank. There I would enjoy the peace and quiet, watch the water rush downstream, and listen to the chirps of birds and the rustling of leaves in the trees. I would also watch the bamboo trees bend under pressure from the wind and watch them return gracefully to their upright or original position after the wind had died down.
When I think about the bamboo tree’s ability to bounce back or return to it’s original position, the word resilience comes to mind. When used in reference to a person this word means the ability to readily recover from shock, depression or any other situation that stretches the limits of a person’s emotions.
Life is a mixture of good times and bad times, happy moments and unhappy moments. The next time you are experiencing one of those bad times or unhappy moments that take you close to your breaking point, bend but don’t break. Try your best not to let the situation get the best of you.
A measure of hope will take you through the unpleasant ordeal. With hope for a better tomorrow or a better situation, things may not be as bad as they seem to be. The unpleasant ordeal may be easier to deal with if the end result is worth having.
If the going gets tough and you are at your breaking point, show resilience. Like the bamboo tree, bend, but don’t break!
