As a child, it didn’t matter what I was dealing with, I always lived with hope. For me hope was positive, 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 to reach our full potential.
We all have choices, so choosing hope is a choice. We can choose to have hope, or we can ignore hope. If we choose to have hope, we believe that life will come good. That whatever the outcome, we will have hope.
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. Hope gives us a quiet confidence that somehow our lives will work out.
Hope helps us bounce back from setbacks and challenges more quickly. Hope also helps us to continue to move forward when setbacks seemed to have moved in. Hope allows us to believe in ourselves and in our abilities, where we would have otherwise given up.
Hope channels positivity without us reverting back to all things negative. It’s that little voice inside our heads telling us it’s not time to give up.
