30 Days of Truth: Hope

30 Days of Truth, Day 25: The reason you believe you are still here today.

I am still here because of simple, stubborn perseverance. I’m here because every morning I wake up and I decide to live. I don’t think there is a higher purpose for my life, but I do believe that I am free to create purpose in how I live. There are things that keep me going, and they are the simple things.

The sun. Hugs. A delicious cup of specialty coffee. Sex (we knew I’d get to that one sooner or later!).The smell after it rains. The little bits of love and kindness I receive from those around me, that I weave into a soft blanket to keep me warm.Bubble baths.

The ability to spread joy. The knowledge that I do not have to take everything absolutely seriously.The fact that the ocean is out there, even though I have not seen it for such a long time. The phases of the moon and the light it throws.

hugsHope. Stubborn, gutsy, resillient, immortal hope.
