Losing Hope?

Today’s post is going to be a bit shorter. I’m still sorting through a lot of the events and circumstances that have prompted this entry, and so there are a few things that I’m not ready to write about.

This year has been one where things have combined to make me feel like I am stuck — socially, financially, personally, and spiritually. One of my greatest joys in life is making progress and moving forward, but I’ve been through enough set backs that it’s become hard to believe that I will ever progress beyond where I am now.

I have a good life, and I can find a lot of joy in the moment. But, when I’m alone, I find that I’ve lost most of my hope that I will ever realize some of my deepest and fondest dreams.

Losing hope hurts.

I’m Not Alone

I guess it must be a season that many people are passing through, because I found comfort in blogs and articles that echo and provide fresh insight into the feelings I’m struggling with. They are worth the time it takes to read and think about them:

If they can turn to Heavenly Father and our Savior to find comfort and strength to keep going, so can I.

  1. The Lord definitely watches over each of His children and blesses them in personal ways. I have received a beautiful phone call from an old friend who told me the most beautiful and encouraging story about someone we both know. I was able to call and receive a much needed blessing from men who hold and honor the priesthood. I was able to get 12 hours of sleep last night. All of these things make a major difference.
