A Manifesto for the Hurt & Hopeful

Manifesto for the Hurt & Hopeful
So. It’s been a crazy few months. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that.

Sometimes words get stuck in my head, and these last few months 2 small words have been rolling around up there.

Hurt, and hope.

I don’t know why those specific words have got stuck in my brain, but I always find that if something keeps tugging at me then it’s there for a reason. So I dug a little, and explored some, and I put together some words that I’ve called a manifesto (for want of a better term).

The way I see it, those 2 small words are things that those of us who try our best, those of us who value compassion, and those of us who exert effort in the direction of the things that matter to us, have in common.

Right now seems like a fitting time to share this with you. Please, go check out the manifesto for the Hurt and the Hopeful.

I’d love to know what you think, and if it strikes a chord in whatever measure, please do feel free to share.


  1. Everytime I read your blog I feel like.. ooooook, another bag of excuses ready to go. Some of them shady some of them pretty and sweet. I can’t deceive myself when everything is so brightly illuminated and I thank you for that. And I hate you for that. What an inspiring Monday morning..

    With lots of emotions,
