There’s Always Hope

Categories: Creative Happy Life

Oh my, what a week it’s been! I’ve achieved something that at times I thought would never happen. It’s reminded me of the power of hope and how it’s such an important part of my life.


When my chronic illness had crippled me and I was lying in bed completely exhausted I’d still dream.

I’d dream of all the things I’d love to do and what I could fill my life with if I had more energy.

For so long I’ve dreamt about sharing my love of yarn and crochet by selling my favourite products online and now it’s actually happening. It’s a small step, a hopeful step and it’s filled my heart with optimism and happiness.

This week I’ve added another 6 products into my online boutique. This is a first and, to be honest, I’m a little bit proud of myself.


Achieving this has reminded me that along with gratitude, hope is a powerful thing. A desire for a different life plants the seed for change.

Regardless of whether you’ve been knocked down by a horrible illness, a busy life that’s spinning out of control or you’ve just had a rough trot, there’s always hope.

You can always dream of a different life.

It won’t happen over night but if you keep dreaming and making tiny changes when you can then your change will start.


I’m still a long way from getting back to a “normal” free-from-illness-life, but I’ve got hope. And that’s all that matters.

I’d love to hear what you’re dreaming about. Share it in the comments below and pop me an email to

With love, Lynda.
