HOPE MONTH: DAY 11: “To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing”― Raymond Williams

This is one of the most lovely quotes I have found in a long time…I would love this to be on my tombstone…it is the goal of my life. To teach others not to despair…to not listen to Ego…to know that all healing is not only possible, but our purpose for being here.

It is the perfect summation of my life…both my personal experience and my purpose for being. And I do not find it a stretch to call myself radical at all. I am sure most of my friends see that one.

So many people are hell-bent on teaching despair or taking away hope. It is not the path I walk. I do not want to see that way…or believe that way…or live that way.

All I know is I marked this quote when I found it. It lifts my heart and my spirit to a lovely place. I hope that happens for you as well. Here’s hoping…

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
