The color of hope | MHAM Blogging Challenge
Today’s prompt: Colors can be very powerful. They can give an impression in a single glance and affect how we feel. What color do you envision when you think of hope? As best you can, tell us why and how that makes you feel.
It’s not just one color. It’s all the colors of a beautiful sunrise or sunset. It’s that perfect mix of yellow, orange, and purple. At other times it’s baby blue and white, like a clear spring day with white fluffy clouds. It’s not so much a particular color as it is the blending of one or more colors. When the lines are blurred between colors, it evokes a sense of calm as though all is right with the world. There is an easy transition between colors.
That’s what hope is like. Hope feels calm. When we have hope then moving through all of life’s circumstances feels easier. The transitions are smoother. Plus, feelings of hope arouse a sense that there is an end to whatever troubles us, the “light at the end of a dark tunnel”. It is the light of the sun that facilitates the color of the sky. That kind of beauty is not possible without light. Hope includes light — the ability to see a situation improving.
No one color can encompass all of that. It takes the full spectrum of light, including the frequencies we cannot see. This final aspect of light is, perhaps, the most important of all. Hope is the ability to believe in possibilities that are not yet available. Just because we can’t see something doesn’t mean it that it isn’t possible. That’s where hope comes in. Hope keeps us going when we can’t see what’s coming.
