Burn it Bright for All to See!

It’s that time of year when many people have financial struggles to make ends meet and wonder how to get food on the table and buy Christmas gifts for our children and clothes to keep them warm. At some point in our lives, we have all watched the flame of hope disappear or start to flicker. When I first went through the Peer Support Training, one of the main things that the trainers discussed was that flame of hope and how it burned out for a lot of people throughout the many years of desperation they had to go through. Looking at my life right now, I think about that flame and how, even though it seems dull at times to me, it has the potential to reach a stronger pigment and will continue to get brighter day by day no matter what my struggles are. Never give up on that flame of hope and remember to shine it through on your life as much as you can!
