“An impossibility is just a possibility you don’t understand yet” ~Matt Haig, A Boy Named Christmas
Holiday movies are popping up everywhere and I don't know about you, but I love a good movie this time of year. In addition to a good movie, the decorations bring out a JOY popping experience for me. Yesterday I drove down a road with spectacular outdoor lights displayed by neighbors! I followed up this driving experience with a great movie and I have shifted my focus to the magic of the season.
"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” ~ Desmond Tutu
Wow. that's the quote to think about as we live during these uncertain times and begin to adjust to not being sure about what our future will hold. Everyday we hear or see something that may be chipping away at our hope.
Where do you get your motivation to fuel your hope? If your December has been filled with a darkness so far, may I suggest a drive to see beautiful lights your neighbors are sharing or cuddle up on the couch to watch a good holiday movie with lots of insight about humans.
The movie A Boy Named Christmas has so many wonderful messages about life and how we choose to live it with hope. Here are a few of the great lines:
"Hope. We all need hope. A spark of magic to keeps us going."
“Perhaps a wish was just a hope with better aim.”
"Isn’t the reward bringing us new hope and wonder?"
"Home is not a place. It’s a feeling."
"Why did you teach me to talk if you’re never going to listen?"
"To see something, you must believe in it. Really believe."
"Grief is the price we pay for love, and it’s worth it a million times over."
"Humans are complicated."
"The only thing in life that is simple and clear, is the truth. But it can be painful."
I wish for you a December filled with possibilities and hope!
