In the terrible, heartbreaking conditions that we're living in today, all we hope is for a better tomorrow, right? Isn't that what we all hope for? An obstacle, a pain, a tear, a strain one less than yesterday, is that not a better tomorrow? A better today?

Have you ever wondered what hope really is? It is a feeling that what i wanted can be had or something will turn out for the best, being the best, it is a feelinkg that something desired may happen, now, tomorrow or maybe later.

Alfred Adler said: “We cannot think, feel, will, or act without the perception of a goal.”

Acknowledging someone's fears and feelings, whether its sadness or happiness does not me one has lost hope. Facing all the sorrow bravely and thinking of facing them the same way in the future, doesn't that make you stronger? Does it give you a hope that everything will be okay, soon? Does it satisfy you? Happiness, joy, a sweet smile help you fight your sorrows and fears, give you hope because nothing is impossible.

Hope is a mixture or willpower and the way-power that help you get to your goals. Goals; Outcomes we desire. Willpower, mental energy and way- power are the mental plans that guide us to a hopeful thought. The difference in hope and optimism is that hope leads to an intended goal, it entails a pathway. Optimism, however, leads to one to expect the best! It does not provide any critical thinking, as to how to arrive to an improved future.

Hope is what we survive on. Without hope, life wouldn't have been possible. When we raise our hands for prayers, if its not hope, what else do we rely on? Like a candle where the glowing wick is held in place by wax, it is faith in the heart that keeps the hope intact. After dark, comes light. A better tomorrow, its just in sight.

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
--Emily Dickinson
