While The Heart Beats


“While the heart beats, hope lingers.”
― Alison Croggon

There is also the saying, “while there’s breath, there’s hope.” I believe both are true. Sometimes, life can deliver us a blow that makes it seem like it would be impossible to keep going. Then hope rises within us and we catch a glimpse of a better future and we are propelled forward.

Hoping for something will anchor us in place, when life seeks to disrupt us. Because hope is such a strong force, it anchors us to our dreams or desires. Then, when life strikes its blows, we are able to weather the storm and remain in place. Even in our darkest hour, hope is like a shimmer of light to guide the way to a new tomorrow.

When we get through to the other side, or even in the midst of it, we can comfort others struggling. If you are facing a storm in your life, remember, “While the heart beats, hope lingers.”

    It reminds of the Greek myth; “Pandora’s Box” – hope must not be allowed to escape us – it is our ally against the ills and hardships facing us in this world..
