Hope is such a fantastic word; I think that many people need more hope in their lives. I was pondering the meaning of hope and decided to look it up. Google led me to find this definition: The meaning of hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a sure thing to happen. I think that is beautiful. 

Hope is a very meaningful word in my personal life. I hope that I will be able to work at my dream job one day, and I hope I will get married. There are a lot of things I hope will happen. I hope I will have a boyfriend; I hope that my friends will be around for a very long time – forever would be good. I hope I’m not unhappy when I grow up. I hope I have twins. I hope I have a stable job and one that I enjoy. I hope every day that I have time to read – especially graphic novels. I hope I can help other people have a better life. 

Hope is important; it makes getting out of bed each day worthwhile. It’s not hard to sit back and consider what you’re hopeful for, and I think we should do that more often. Taking time to hope helps us appreciate what we have already – don’t you agree? Dreaming is good for the soul. 

 I can have hope for a lot of things. What do you have hope for? Your child? Your husband or wife? You can have hope for anything! It’s worth it to take time and consider what you should hope for today. Hope will find you – as long as you believe in that thing.
