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 hope is something we need to hold on to if it is 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, and helps us to reach our full potential.
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 life will come good. That whatever the outcome, hope will still be there.
One way to increase hope is to be more mindful about what we deal with. I believe hope can spill into all areas of our lives. 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 the setbacks seemed to have moved in. Hope allows us to believe in ourselves and in our abilities, where we would otherwise have given up.
Hope channels positivity and helps us not to revert to all things negative. It’s that little voice inside our heads telling us it’s not time to give up.
