    Life is a journey. We have been given a life and we have been given a destination. We cannot change the destination but we can change the way that we approach our life’s journey.

    In the poem ‘Life’, Charlotte Brontë said that she would not lose hope. She is also saying that she will not give up on her dreams and aspirations even though life has dealt them a blow. Why should we not lose hope? It is because we have to believe that there is something better out there for us. We have to continue to keep pushing forward. The truth is that life can sometimes be hard but we cannot let go of our faith in what we want to accomplish. If we do not have hope, then we will never get what we want. Hope is an essential part of life.
