Hope exists for everyone. Our histories may have us convinced that there is no hope. Our histories may even prevent us from thinking that we are deserving of hope. Yet hope exists nevertheless. No matter what you may have done in the past, you are deserving and are capable of more and better. Do not be deceived. So many have walked in your shoes, that teach us that hope exists for you, and that a better life is just around the corner. Today, I will have hope. I will recognize even on my worst day, things can and do get better. Today I will persevere with the hope of a better tomorrow.
