Hope From Above

Photo taken by contributor Danielle in New Jersey. She’s a woman in her thirties who has had many diagnoses over the years, including major depressive disorder and bipolar II, as well as traits of borderline personality disorder, OCD, and ADD.

About this photo: This photo embodies spring to me… A time of transition. A time of rebirth. A time of hope.

Even in our personal darkness, we must remember to look up and see the signs of hope that are all around if we only open our eyes and look for them.
