    Jesus Christ. But I often didn’t see this in the moment.

    Helpless rather than hopeless for me. I am struggling to remember a time when I had no hope. But helpless in the face of life’s many sharp turns, yes. In that space I can to some extent leave it to the great unknown. I have also found strength in a belief that some change will act on me and that change will be a growth. Sometimes help from others can be helpful, professional or otherwise.

    Monty Python and Star Trek.
    The awe-inspiring landscape of my home,
    Talking to my dearest two friends. Reminding myself of what the arts and literature mean to me, and reminding myself of what I have accomplished so far in relation to my ill health.
    A cup of English breakfast tea with dessert, reminding me that the little, pleasurable, most trivial things are pearls in time.

    The will that I know I need to carry on in order to see my dreams through even if it is hard for me to make it through each day
    I owe the person who worked hard to make those dreams come alive the opportunity to work on them

    Honestly, all the positive things I’ve heard people say over the years, even if it wasn’t meant for me … like hearing people say encouraging things gets stored in my brain and seems to resurface in difficult times.

    I can’t recall ever feeling hopeless when turning inward – only my outward perception on a few occasions. So, I have come to learn that if I do not like what I see outwardly, turning inward is the answer. It might seem a bit like a solitary solution, because in one sense it is, but paradoxically at the same time it is being at one with all creation. The words are clumsy and inadequate, but they might give you some idea. I find myself dwelling more and more in internal dimensions as I go about my day-to-day being.

    My family, friends, and the community has helped me when I have felt hopeless.
    My spiritual practice has also played a huge role in letting go of negative minds.

    My belief in a higher power. Praying, meditating, talking to my “guides”. Practicing gratefulness. Making myself move, walking, yoga.
    Affirmations. Getting out in nature. Trusting that this too shall pass.
