A Gathering of Hope

We all get sold this idea that life is some kind of beautiful fantasy, then when we learn that that is not true, we hurt, we hurt badly. But we push through that pain. Every day.

When our dreams are shattered and we learn that they will never come true, we make new dreams. When we fully understand the concept of our mortality, we learn to make each day count, to not waste time on things that don’t matter.

When we lose someone we love for the first time, we learn to love the ones that are still there harder, to appreciate them and celebrate our relationship with them.

When family is denied us, or taken away from us, we create our own family. We learn to share out our love to those who need it, with an elderly living alone, with children without parents, with abandoned or threatened animals.

We find happiness despite the pain, and that is what makes human beings so darn strong. And amazing. And awe inspiring. We all live with pain every day. All of us. But we do just that, we live with it. Fully and happily. That is what makes a human being so great.

  1. Beautifully written Trini. The human trait is built on that love…the one that has more strength than any other thing in this world ❀ πŸ˜€
    Great share…and I love your angel and the lady ornament wrapped in the soul of your garden ❀ πŸ˜€

      • There it is again…the word compassion has come up about 6 or 7 times over the last few days Trini. Spirit wants me to ‘see’ something ❀ πŸ˜€
        Thank YOU for sharing your compassion young lady πŸ˜€ ❀ πŸ˜€ ❀

      • I was asked by Barbara at MeMyMagnificentSelf to do a guest spot on compassion. And straight away spirit ‘forwarded’ it to me, and by the ‘connections’ of people around me πŸ˜€ ❀
        So thank you for 'connecting' with your heart as well Trini ❀ πŸ˜€

  2. Such a beautiful inspiring write dear Trini.. learning to move through pain and let it go strengthens our soul and yes we become stronger for it.. Sounds like you have first hand experiences.. But your beautiful soul is shining through so bright.. Love and Hugs my friend xxxπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’–

    • Thank you so much, Sue! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–. Yes, pain is a part of everyone’s life, I think. We are mortal humans after all. So I think we all have to learn to live with both excruciating pain and boundless joy. For me, this is the most important life lesson. πŸ’–πŸ’–.

      • I agree with you Trini.. without Pain we would not know Joy.. So both go hand in hand.. Life lessons may be painful at times, but each lesson allows us to grow and expand higher.. We are all growing in that regard.. Love and hugs my sweet dear friend xx

    • Oh, Thank you so so so much! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– You touch my heart with your beautiful words πŸ’–. It means a lot to me to hear, so thank you. πŸ’–.
