Tell me...where does your hope come from?
I'm optimistic by nature, so I believe (faith?) that no matter how bad things are, they will always get better in the long run.
I say in the long run, because I know (in my mind) things can still get worse before they get better... And really, if I couldn't function if I thought things weren't going to work, in which case, what would be the point of continuing?
Hope gives me strength, and allows me to act with resolve.
