Marsha at Always Write hosts a challenge that requires adding a quote on a topic of her choice. Today’s topic is hope. I have not participated in this challenge before. I read Sadje’s post and looked further into the prompt.
“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.” – Barbara Kingsolver
As a young child I had many hopes for my future:
I hoped for a life without violence
I hoped to escape poverty
I hoped for a career in teaching
I hoped to live in a calm house
I hoped to have a running car
I hoped to have shoes that fit
I hoped to have money to buy books
I hoped to have friends
I hoped to have happiness
I can honestly say I lived in that hope daily. My life has been a roller coaster (like most people.) The great news is that I am living life that I hoped for since I was a little girl.
“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” – Jonas Salk
