1Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…
Love is the driving force beyond 99.9999% of all actions. Whether pursuing the love of your life or your ideal job, it all stems from the same place deep within and manifests in different ways on different levels. Love allows a person to hope, to dare, to believe, to endure, to never quit. Love also fuels and replenishes and when necessary, love heals. Love is the elixir of life!

“Where there is love, there is life.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
5 decades later and from generation to generation, many have lived to witness the legacy and longevity of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s spirit; a spirit that 50 years later still permeates every soul. Dr. King stood proudly, without fear, reservation, or doubt on the merits of hope, equality, and inspiration. What Dr. King professed in 1963 remains relevant in 2013. Many have attempted to fill the void left by his assassination, but none have garnered the mass support or respect shown to Dr. King. An oracle and visionary, he fought vehemently to pave the way so all citizens would be afforded the same rights and opportunities; a feat that is still an ongoing battle.
Hope is the fabric dreams are woven from; the zeal of endless possibilities; and the ship to carry you troubled waters.
What do you do when you start losing hope? It’s a question so many face and even fewer have the answer to. Worse, when hope is lost, nothing else seems to matter or make sense.
Life is a fickle beast that can tear the strongest of souls apart. Life will also stretch the fiber of your very being. It will bring you to your knees if you allow it to or cause you to rise from the ashes if you accept that challenge. At the core of the spectrum is… HOPE! Emily Dickinson said, ““Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” In the movie I Am Number Four, the character Pittacus Lore states, “When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.”
With all the talk about how our younger generation is squandering the opportunities given them, BrotherWord would like to assure you that nothing is further from the truth. Don’t penalize the whole for the few. There is a multitude of phenomenal young people who are excelling above and beyond anyone’s greatest hope for them. Surpassing their elder statesmen and outshining them in every aspect, these groundbreakers are the epitome of all that is wonderful and exciting about the future. Enjoy this sample of tomorrow’s leaders, entrepreneurs, developers, and entertainers.
Hope is the fuel that feeds the dream. When we hope, we are excited about the possibilities, determined to pursue our dream, and bold enough to believe we can accomplish it all. Hope gives us a sense of invincibleness in which we can dig deep and bring forth our best. It is something that no one can take away or destroy. Hope breeds presidents, wins championships, births legends! Hope gives us enough reasons to continue despite any setbacks or opposition. Sometimes all we need is hope to spark our reality. Hope yourself today. Hope enough to believe your wildest dreams. Hope all you can to be all you can. Hope your way to your destiny.“The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started” ~ Norman Cousins “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” ~ Christopher Reeve “Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops… at all.” ~ Emily Dickinson
Is the dream your chasing worth the price your paying? If it isn’t empowering, enriching, or energizing your life and those around you, it may be time to reevaluate. The dream is about hope & aspirations and the pursuit should be envigorating and enlightening. Be inspired, be committed, be persistent, but most important, be mindful of the road ahead. Dream the impossible, strive for the unimaginable, and see the incomparable become impactful! #DreamChaser
