HOPE is when you want something to happen, and you trust that it will.
PERSEVERANCE is when you continue to work at doing something even though it is hard.
Watch this story called "Giraffe's Can't Dance". What do you think? Is Gerald The Giraffe hopeful that he will be able to dance, or does he use perseverance to work at becoming a better dancer?
Gerald is hopeful that he will be able to dance and in the end he finds the right music and he becomes a successful dancer.
Having hope is an important thing for everyone. But it's also important to have perseverance. We all will come up against things that are hard and we will have to work hard. Remember the power of YET!
It's important that you know that there is always SOMEONE who can help you when you need it. You may need help learning a new skill or remembering how to do something you learned a long time ago. Maybe you are feeling alone and sad because you are missing people you love. You may just be feeling frustrated because things aren't going the way you want them to go. Close your eyes, quiet your mind, and know that there is always somebody you can lean on for the help that you need. You only need to call on them...
