The Power of Hope

Posted by @roxie43, Aug 11, 2012

There are times, circumstances, life’s trials and tribulations that often cause one to lose hope. I know how it feels to feel so hopeless that nothing seems worth it anymore.. It is a horrible state of mind to be in! Then, something or someone comes along and renews that sense of meaning and having faith that this too shall pass. The past year has been very challenging, stressful, depressing and I felt so hopeless.
I am in a different place today and I owe it to my friends at Mayo, family, peers, wonderful doctors and my faith that was surely tested over and over.
How has hope positively impacted your life??
Wishing you all blessed times and renewed HOPE!

For me my dear friends faith and hope go hand in hand. I no that over the past 6 months and my dear friends who have carried me through this time and I’m forever grateful, that my faith never faltered, and know I am living with the hope of things that have just turned around for me.
We need to live for know and follow our dreams and when we need to rely on the ones that really care for us to hold us up for a while. Take care Piglit

I agree… sometimes we do not realize that there are some that have it so much worse.. It’s difficult to see this when we are consumed with our own issues.

You no at times I think that our faith is tested and we are at times challenged more that we should be . But I also beleive that this makes us stronger and in the end our faith will continue to give us the strength that we need. I can tell that your scared and it’s so not a good feeling I know this. Not every experience with a hospital has to be a bad one maybe you should trust and go earlier. I have had not so good experiences over the years too, but I have also had excellent ones to. Take care alwyas here Piglit
