Hope has been the fundamental source of strength during my journey through life. As early as I can remember, those times when I had lost hope, I had also temporarily lost my ability to move forward, finding myself immobilized by the self-imposed barriers that made my world appear dark, like there was no way out.
Receiving validation and a reminder of my accomplishments from those who cared for my well-being enabled me to tap into my resilience and challenge myself to overcome adversity. To me, hope is the magic of transformation. Most importantly, paying hope forward allows us to help others, which in return helps heal ourselves. ~ Kym L. Pasqualini
