The presence of hope in my life has shifted and its meaning has lost its feeling of grandoise in my life. Fear not, I have not become a pessimist. I chose to live in the moment. I believe in myself as a woman of strength, not in some unknown force that will bring me shamrocks, 4 leaf clovers, pot of golds and a happy fairy tale ending. I believe in God giving me strength not a happy~fuzzy~warm answer to my prayer.

Life is not a fairy tale, its, I believe learning every day lessons about love, forgiveness and peace.

Hope, in the view I've had of it in the past allowed me to believe that I will have a happy-ending-just-around-the-corner to the long-standing heartache in my life.

My exhusband is who he is. I refuse to allow him to turn me bitter. I will not have hope for this situation, rather, I will better myself and fortify myself with positive affirmations, gratitude and tenacity.

He has stripped me of everything I valued highest in my life. He once ripped away from me and clutched in his fist, my humility, self respect, belief in myself and others. He took my children away from me and watched me recoil in fear and self loath.

I have risen from the fetal position I resigned myself to and hold onto the wall for strength. I reach out my hand to others. I lit a candle in the dark. I fear not. My prayers, I utter in the night to ward off the demons of despair.

I will have courage and strength to face each day and love myself so I can in return love others deeply with all my strength. I will challenge myself as I grow stronger. This strength will enable me to face my situation rather than focusing on a hope of an ending to the chapter of my life that I am currently engaged in.

I do not wish to attain an easy life with no adversities, that is unrealistic and even if this could be a reality, the end result would be a person who lacked depth and true character. I will see the blessings in the trials I endure.
