“The light is always there, behind the cloud. You have to find it.”
Today I call you Hope. For I believe, you are the glow of the lamp that holds the light of tomorrow. The light, that is always there to enlighten the way in despair of darkness. You are the healer, your presence awakens the soul to see new dreams. You are the reason to bring back someone to the light, for you make someone feel alive, once again.
Remember one thing, nobody but you can heal yourself. Because only you know, what gives you pain, where your wounds reside, what is pulling you down and letting go of which things can make you heal.
You thought that the story is over. No more chapter will be added afterwards. It was your last chapter of the book called Life. You thought, all the bad things happened to only you. You cursed yourself, and ask to God again and again, “Why me? Why only me?”
But no one replied. You thought, even He is smiling on your bad deeds, your mistakes, your failures. You stopped dreaming for light, you thought there would be no good thing to come in your life once again.
Devastated, defeated, you were wandering from one door to another, to knock your good luck. You wanted success, but all the world planned to gift you only failure.
You thought, you might have done any extreme sin in your past life, for that only, you are carrying a curse so that you will not have the light in your life again. You will never see the light.
You thought that your life is filled with darkness and despair, it’s not worth to wait for the light.
Only then, at that most unreal hour of the night, a thin ray of light peeps from behind the dark cloud. You thought, it must be an illusion. As you have been searching for the light always, you saw the light. It was nothing but an illusion, perhaps, a prism of lies from the heaven.
But, no, it was not a lie. The light was not a lie, it was not an illusion. The light was the only truth the last stroke of night holds. The light is called, ‘Hope’.
When you are travelling in the road of adversity, hope is the only flame that will send you a positive vibe. And someday, it will lit the lamp of glory. You want to chase your dream, but if your heart is filled with hopelessness, then how could you turn your fear into faith? Failure into success?
Once, while writing my own journal, a thought came to my mind. I wanted to call myself A Girl Who Failed. Not a single time but hundred times. And with each failure, she broke and shattered into pieces. One day, she fell on the ground, with no hope left in her heart. But I didn’t write it. Instead, I wrote, A Girl Who Chased Her Dream. The next moment, I felt an amazing kind of self-love in my heart. I felt a thirst of being called alive, once again. When there was nothing to heal me, to make me come alive, Hope did it. Beautifully, with all its grace.
I believe, every journey begins with a thin ray of hope. For the light that tiny ray bears within, is something we always wished for. We had a secret wish inside us, and the light brings to us that lost wish once again. When I was feeling lost in the darkness, I felt that my life is over, a little ray of hope still was there, in my heart. I had a silent whisper, “It’s not the sunset. The colours of the dusk bear the promise of a new day. The chapter is over, not the story. Somewhere in the universe, a new chapter of your story is still waiting to be written. Somewhere, someone is weaving the next chapter. Perhaps, your lost story is waiting to be written in a new way, with a new hope.”
Since then, I believe in hope, I believe in tomorrow. Whatever it takes me to withstand the storm, to fight the dark night, I still hope for tomorrow.
Brighter, stronger. Inspiring, and powerful.
I pray, tomorrow’s daybreak send you the ray of hope, and eventually, it heal all your wounds. Let the tomorrow bring you the secret to reveal a new horizon.
Sending you some petals of love and a handful of stardust.
For Hope, for healing,
