Looking For Hope…

Looking For Hope…

I have a ton of things to get done, and of course I wake up feeling like I’ve been hit by a bus.  My brain is fuzzy.  I have one sock on, one sock off, and could definitely use a shower.

I think it must be a Murphy’s Law thing…on the days that I beg and plead with my body to behave, it completely revolts, and on days that I could be relaxing, it acts not half bad.

Lately things have been feeling rather futile, and I wonder what the point is of everything and anything.  It’s so tempting to just roll over and give up, but that would a) not be a good precedent to set for younger people getting these illnesses and b) deep down it’s just not in my nature to give up.

So I’m going to grab a cup of coffee, crawl into that shower, and attempt to restore some hope into my day.

How do you all generate hope when you’re feeling rather down and out?

  1. I love to read my Bible..especially verses that say pain will soon be a thing of the past. (Isaiah 33:24). I also like to vent to my husband or journal.

  2. Great quote, so very true. I keep hopeful by looking at how big the very small steps forward I’ve made in the past year have changed my quality of life so much. They are only very very small changes, but if I carry on making those, I will get there eventually.

    I hope your fuzzy brain is less fuzzy today, a fuzzy brain is one of my least favourite things.
