Hope is found in believing for change, believing things can be better, believing that although I may not know the future, there is the tiniest of light in every dark space. That there is always even the smallest slither of hope that the river will bend, the sun will rise again and the flowers will bloom. Sometimes when we feel particularly lost, we only have the strength to hold the hand of another, piggy back on their hope and their belief that light is always brighter and stronger than the darkest of nights. Change will come. Light will shine. Peace will be known. Hope will be Found.
Life with Epilepsy can at times feel unending, frustrating, scary, lonely and hopeless. We need each other. We need to hold onto the strength of another when life feels hard, dark and sad. We are made for community. We are made to love. We are made to piggy back one another when they can’t walk themselves. We can be the hand, the hug, the meal, the driver, the company, the support, the fun …. journeying together to find and hold onto Hope.
