We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments. We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But just because what sells, what goes "viral," or what gets attention may try to drown out the good in the world, it doesn't mean that goodness is gone. Just because choruses of controversy and scandal shout louder than quiet symphonies of service, it doesn't mean that inside most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.
Media can make the world look bleak. They've given themselves this job description, in part because there's a darker side on the surface of human nature that feeds on fear and cynicism. But deep down, we are beings of light. And in the end, since darkness is merely the absence of light, light will inevitably overcome dark.
This is the essence of hope. No matter what you've been through, no matter if you think you're falling apart, it's gonna be okay. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right.
This is one of our new self-help resources available to our Ambassador community. Here we will feature the thoughts, questions, and insight of the our fellow Ambassadors. You can even leave comments of encouragement or feedback to fellow Ambassadors that may be having a tough time.
