#rarediseasejournalingchallenge Day 1

Let's talk about hope!

Hope is a word that ignites strong emotions in many. It's a little word with big possibilities.

Hope is something to cling to on our bad days and something to gift others with on our good days.

Today, spend some time journaling about hope. You can write an acrostic poem (I did a play on this); describe an experience in which hope carried you through; list future hopes for yourself, your child, or your community; or just sketchnote any thoughts that come to mind.

Here's my journal page:

Hope can be a tricky, fleeting thing. Since it is intangible, it can be hard to explain to others and can at times seem to lack justification. False hope can lead to difficulty in ever hoping again. But ultimately, we all need hope.
