Speck of Hope –
Hello, from Tamara!
Today was an especially rough day for me, emotionally. My bad day began from something that happened to me yesterday, and the day before that, as well. This something opened up old wounds that I thought had thoroughly healed through my reasoning skills.
As an emotional person, sometimes reasoning skills go out the window when triggers seep in through my protection barrier.
Today was no better, but actually worse than even the two days I had just experienced. So then, everything suddenly began triggering me simply because I was already so miserable.
The one thing that kept me going, however, was the single element that has always kept me hanging on: a speck of hope.
Hope, no matter how minuscule, is the greatest miracle in my life. It is my lifesaver, and my Eternal Blessing.
A speck of hope has been my companion since I was a child, hiding in my bedroom from my abusive, alcoholic mom (and my stepdad who remained a frightening, neglectful stranger to me all of my life).
Hope is a God-Given gift that outshines the darkest and dreariest of days, even if it appears as only a mere speck, at times.
This is the power of hope!
