As a child, it didn’t matter what I was dealing with, I always lived with hope. Hope was positivity, a faith, an innate belief that I would get through whatever I was dealing with, no matter what.
But having hope is something we need to hold on for it to continue to work. It must be a fundamental part of our lives. Hope gives us access to all areas of our lives. It also gives us a reason to get up in the morning, it gives us a purpose, hope helps us reach our full potential.
The fact is that we all have choices in our life, so choosing hope is a choice. We can choose to have hope or we can choose to ignore it. If we choose to have hope, we believe that our life will come good. That whatever the outcome, we will use hope to move on.
One way to increase ‘hope’ is to be more mindful about what we deal with. I believe hope can spill into other areas of our lives too. Having hope helps us focus on what’s going on. Hope gives us a quiet confidence that somehow our lives will work out.
It helps us bounce back from setbacks and challenges more quickly. Hope also helps us to continue to move forward when the setbacks have moved in. Hope allows us to believe in ourselves and in our ability to succeed, where we would have otherwise given up.
Hope channels positivity without us reverting back to all that is negative and is often that little voice inside our heads that’s telling us not to give up.
