You are not your feelings. You just experience them. Anger, sadness, hate, depression, fear. This is the rain you walk in. But you don’t become the rain. You know the rain will pass. You walk on. And you remember the soft glow of the sun that will come again.

It’s okay that you don’t know how to move on. Start with something easier… like not going back.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’

Even now, as broken as you may feel, you are still so strong. There’s something to be said for how you hold yourself together and keep moving, even though you feel like shattering. Don’t stop. This is your healing. It doesn’t have to be pretty, or graceful. You just have to keep going.

What is broken can be mended. What hurts can be healed. And no matter how hard it gets, the sun will rise again.

Carve a tunnel of hope through the dark mountain of disappointment.

Try to hold onto your faith in people. Hope and love accomplish a lot more than cynicism and judgment.

Just because you can’t see it clearly now, that doesn’t mean things won’t work out for you. Keep going and trust in yourself. This may or may not pan out as you hoped it would, but it’s worth the risk. And no matter what happens, you can handle it, and you will be just fine.

As long as you feel pain, you’re still alive. As long as you make mistakes, you’re still human. And as long as you keep trying, there’s still hope.

Life’s not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it’s about doing, being and becoming.

May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.

A lesson for all of us is that for every loss, there is victory, for every sadness, there is joy, and when you think you’ve lost everything, there is hope.

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

Without giving up hope—that there’s somewhere better to be, that there’s someone better to be—we will never relax with where we are or who we are.

H.O.P.E. Hold on, pain ends.

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.

Forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment.

The natural flights of the human mind are not from pleasure to pleasure but from hope to hope.
