Faith and Hope


Each chapter that is ending leads you to a new beginning,

The past you are leaving means future you are winning,

How you meet each challenge determines what you gain,

So believe that…

The only thing which stands between you and what you want from your life is…

FAITH(In Yourself) To believe that it is possible…

 

I was walking in the morning today and was thinking how will I wrap the above lines in a blog? I got my answer from one word, “Faith”. I thought there is something common in “Faith” and “Hope” but there are differences as well.

Faith: – Complete confidence in a person or plan etc

 

Allegory of faith, by L.S. Carmona (1752–53). Veil symbolizes the impossibility to know directly the evidences.

Hope: -Someone (or something) on which expectations are centered.

Spes or
Spes or “Hope”; engraving by Sebald Beham, German c1540

Similarities:

  • Both drive a person from darkness towards high spirits in testing times.
  • They yield positive feelings.
 Differences:
  • Faith is related closely to a person (him/her)self and not associated with others (It is my point of view) and so you are responsible for the outcome and believe me, outcome will be +ve in 90% of cases and rest 5% is left for hope.
  • Hope and expectations are almost same side of a coin where you yourself are not responsible for the outcome and that is the basic difference where you are dependent on person who is not you and so you have no control on outcome and you can’t cry on the outcome, you can’t take responsibility of the same because you are not the main subject even though you will be the person who will be affected by that outcome for which you are hoping but you are helpless.

Daily Prompt: Un/Faithful

My New Year’s Resolutions – 2013 and 2012 Resolved


Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky; it is so true from last couple of years. Somehow I learnt to be happy on my own in past few years and I could achieve that with not much ease.

The battle with your own self is the toughest to win considering the fact that you are playing all the roles of victim, accused, defense lawyer, prosecutor, and judge. From last few years I have been critical of my own self for the matters which work as colors to paint on the canvas of my new year.

My resolutions from years have been similar but don’t have boundaries. There is always a scope of improvement in each of these and so I don’t change them:

  1. To be a better human
  2. To control my emotions
  3. To do good things
  4. To avoid anger
  5. To walk a lot
  6. To talk with my own self a lot
  7. To avoid fake people/friends

Every year I feel as if I need to improve more on the above aspects and I try to work hard to accomplish what I did in last year and I can say with happiness that I find scope of improvement every time. Reason I find that scope of improvement a good thing is the belief that being perfectionist is the end of road and I want to travel a lot in the journey of my life.

I want to be painted more and more with the colors of improved beliefs…

Welcome 2013 J I need you to challenge myself to fulfill my modified goals.
