This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!
Hope is not pretending that troubles don't exist. It is the hope that they won't last forever. That hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome. That we will be led out of the darkness and into the sunshine.
Joy and hope are never separate. I have never met a hopeful person who was depressed or a joyful person who had lost hope...It is important to become aware that at every moment of our life we have the opportunity to choose joy. It is in the choice that our true freedom lies, and that freedom is, in the final analysis, the freedom to love.
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.
Hope, deceitful though it be, is at least of this good use to us that while we are traveling through this life, it conducts us by an easier and more pleasant way to our journey's end.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

My hero is a senior at my high school. I was at a point where I felt I couldn't handle it. I had just quit making a bad decision. I was just observing people like usual. I saw this girl who was ALWAYS smiling. ALWAYS. When I started to talk to her, I knew she had an amazing story. She never gave up.

My little sister is my hero because even though she's been through hard times she can still smile and be happy. She's had kidney problems, our dad left, and she's moved all over the place. She's had a hard time but she manages to always put a smile on people's faces.
