Today where is hope? Day 23

I feel very low today, shellshocked by recent events. Moving when I didn’t want to move. Losing my independence.

So today I feel abandoned by the hope I held. I promised to be transparent, so I will be. I promised to have integrity so I am writing honestly, even though it would be so so easy to pour platitudes into this page.

Today vI’m making a choice to just be with others around me who carry hope, because they are kind, because they have invited me to dinner.

I don’t know how to go forward. I feel depleted and desolate. One major event has knocked me for six.

So today’s recipe is to go towards other hope bearers when we are on the ground. Because their hopefulness and love is always available, like a refreshing oasis in a desert.

I am a qualified social worker and run a community project for vulnerable adults. I am passionate about social justice. I feel that every life matters. No-one is insignificant or invaluable. I also believe that everyone has the power to change, although some may not wish to. Essentially, I believe in hope. Hope Wells is my writing name.
