It's that time of year again when people look philosophically back at the current year, and start to think about how they'll improve their situation in the new year. But for many, this is a very hard time of the year.
I've had a few friends this year who seem to have almost lost hope when they've ended up in poor situations.
I just wanted to make a short post to encourage you all to never lose hope. Alexander Pope said:
Hope springs eternal in the human breast: Man never is, but always to be blest.
No matter how bad you think your situation is. There is hope. It's in you and all around you. I loved the awesome image from Stephen Walker that I've used above. You just need to recognize it.
In many cases, you really just need to talk the situation through with others. Don't be afraid to do so. We're here to listen.
