Episode 13: When Hope is Poison

In this week’s blog, we will be diving into the Nomad Minute episode 13 entitled “When Hope is Poison.”

Few things are more powerful than hope.

When we pursue the things we hope for, nothing else matters. But hope that is never given a chance to come to life is suffocating.

You see, hope is the oxygen of your soul… but if you hold your breath too long… even oxygen turns to poison.

What are the things you hope for? What are the things you rehearse over and over in the quiet of your mind that keep you going?

Maybe it’s that you might finally find “the one,” or start your own business, or take that trip… or maybe it’s that constant hope for a life free of that addiction no one knows about.

Whatever it is, ask yourself, “What is my plan to make these hopes happen?”

You see, the things you hope for have a shelf life… Not because they give up on you but because if you wait too long… you’ll give up on yourself.

Hope deferred leads to disillusion.

Your dreams choose you, your heart fuels them with hope, but you… you have to do the work to give them life.

Dreams were never meant to be locked away in the cage of “someday.” Dreams were meant to be lived.

So what are you going to do to make “someday” today?

Hope is the oxygen of your soul… but if you hold your breath too long… even oxygen turns to poison.
