The Importance of Hope in One's Life
The importance of hope
In a world full of greed and critics there is hope. We may sometimes feel that the world is all against us when we are doomed and in darkness. We may sometimes think of giving up. That whatever we do we cannot solve any problems that throw up at us. And that God is unfair to us.
In every circumstance we counter we feel so exhausted that you do not want to get up. And never forget that in life there are also full of surprises.
The dictionary describes hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes with respect to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. As a verb, its definitions include: "expect with confidence" and "to cherish a desire with anticipation”...
The image I used has a rectangular shape with black background and in the middle there is a flower that blooms beautifully. When we say black as a color it means it is the dimension of all colors. But when we used black as a descriptive image it symbolizes “darkness”. Yellow color symbolizes hope and happiness. It is also a color of sunshine and has conflicting associations. On other hand, yellow represents happiness, freshness, positivity, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment, remembrance, intellect, honor, loyalty, and joy.
Green is a color of life. Which means the growth, harmony, freshness, fertility, and environment. However, green represents money, finances, banking, ambition, greediness, jealousy, and wall street. Which means all in our lives surround all of these matters. Thus, the image tells us overall that what you see is not what you totally get. Only those who never give up will get what he sees. Psychologically, green and yellow are both a symbol of life and hope.
Hope is universal. It crosses all human boundaries: age, race, class, ethnicity, gender, political, and religions or any other persuasions. All of us need it. Almost everyone exhibits it at some measure of hope if they have it as far as this day. Before we begin our new day everyday, we simply aim for some hope that we can perfectly do what needs to be done on that day. But it is not just simply a “wish” for something to happen. Hope is very important because it plays a big role in our lives. It helps us to get there and different paths for us to take. Life can be difficult and it is not a surprise to anyone. Yet, hope allows us to continue in life, to keep going down different roads, to try, to see other things, and make things for our perfect ideal aim even when there seems like there’s no solution at all. In fact, the word hope is equal to the word “faith”. Faith is the evidence of the things that is not seen and the substance of things hoped for. Which means, if you simply wish for something and wait to happen and do nothing toward it, then it is useless. As the saying goes “faith without action is dead” is the same as wishing on something to happen without doing anything for it to happen.
Yes, all of us have different stories to tell, different characteristics we have, and different environments we are in. Fulfilling our ideal hope is different for different people. It depends on one how to handle the situation. But always remember this whoever you are, wherever you are, and whatever you do, whether it is good or bad you can still turn the cards. Because in life, no one wants to end up as a loser.
Everyone tries to do their best. Just don’t forget no matter what life throws up at you and no matter where life leads you there's always light. Of course, never forget where you started when you reach the top. Never ever forget those people who are behind your back when you lose hope. Lastly, never forget the one who really is always there for you even if you cannot see HIM and that is GOD. The source of life of everyone.
