Finding Hope

If you haven't read 'Man's Search for Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust' by Viktor E. Frankl you definitely should, what an incredible book. Frankl has a way of reminding us that in all circumstances in life we can find and hold on to hope. We always have a choice about how we will view our life and the attitude we choose to adopt. If hope can be found in the concentration camps than whatever you are facing today, you can also find hope.

 'We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that eveything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of all human freedoms- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.'
