Spark of Hope #89 – When I get in the writing-mode, I’m usually sitting in one of four spaces: in my home-office, at the dining room table, in the breakfast room overlooking the pool, or in my living room’s comfy chaise lounge. Taking an evening walk with my husband yesterday convinced me that I’m overdue to add a writing space outdoors. Changing positions while writing not only wards off monotony, it changes your perspective and sparks creativity. During our walk, we encountered a pool of standing water. “Mosquito breeding ground,” right? Then, we looked a little closer and a little deeper. There were minuscule tadpoles swimming about — they had harvested the over-abundant rainwater as their “home.” That made me stop and think. How often do we form our impressions upon what we see at first glance? Perhaps, if we made a habit of looking a little deeper, we’d see that Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday, right in our backyard — that’s the nature of HOPE!
Hope is like a spark; if the conditions are right, it can spread like wildfire. Hope feeds the soul, ignites passion, and inspires others. Tucked inside each of us is a child-like spark that says: never forget to dream, play and imagine. HOPE is the extraordinary spark that says Huge Outcomes are Possible Everyday!
