jack hoping

Thought for the Night

I choose hope.

Not just specific things that I can see or desire, things or situations to hope for. Not dependent on how likely the better outcome may be, or on whether I think I can do something, or whether my observations to this point stand as evidence for hope.

But hope itself, as a direction and a focus for my life.

I choose hope over lack, over longing, over despair, over hurt.

I choose hope.
