Things that instil hope in my heart:
1) Restoration videos. YouTube is known for its strange and stranger recommendation of random videos. When I lay hopeless, appears the videos in which abandoned, rusted, neglected objected are refurbished. If gadgets/ articles/ devices can/are conditioned, my heart that’s crippled can be mended, right?
2) Park. When I visit the park, I see children playing on a seesaw, the sight strangely evokes thoughts and I begin to ponder the philosophy of life, the law of balance, how inextricable- the process of going up and down are. This brings hope that I’ll rise soon every time I fall.
3) Kids. I see kids smiling when their friends ride down the slide, they smile wider as they enjoy the to and forth motion of the swing, the mud makes them merrier, their smile provides abundant warmth. They don’t look for reasons to smile, instead, they create one. They give hope to smile and to live.
4) Plants. I love plants. Unlike us don’t complain about the seasons, they adapt to the changes, they convert their struggles into strengths, sometimes, healthy buds from the dead plant grow when replanted in another pot. They symbolise hope, strength and strive to thrive.
