Fearfully hopeful

Patience is only patience when it is the foundation of hope. Not when it is the pacifier of fear.

Hope is the currency of growth, whereas fear is what breeds decay.

To patiently await the decay of what we hold dear is not patience, it is surrender.

To hope, despite the apparent futility that stares us down, is the ultimate rebellion against fear.

To patiently persevere is therefore to continue fighting for that which brings us love and happiness, especially when the circumstances of our lives will warrant a surrender.

It is this beautiful patience that holds the promise of a heart filled with love, or a life fraught with pain.

When we lose sight of the outcome that we hope to achieve, we surrender to fear and settle for the familiarity of the pain that we once yearned to escape.

Surrender must never be an option.
