Hope. It is so strange that such a small word can give such strength and power to those who believe in it and have it. I believe everybody should have hope. When life throws you a curve ball or gives you a disease like Lupus, you learn that in these hard times that some things will never be the same. Although, one thing that can never be taken away is hope. Hope is one thing, through the endeavors in life that you can always believe in. That four letter word can give you the power to believe in yourself, to never give up, to have dreams, to pursue those dreams, and to understand that everything happens for a reason. Strength in yourself is what gets you through those hard times, but you need to have hope that things will get better and eventually they will. Hope is what fuels that inner fire inside of you and what keeps your inner warrior going.
