As a child, it didn’t matter what I was dealing with, I always lived with hope. For me hope was positive, it was 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 can help 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. Hope can spill into all areas of our lives. Having hope helps us focus. Hope gives us a quiet confidence that our lives will work out.
Hope helps us bounce back from setbacks and challenges more quickly. Hope allows us to believe in ourselves and in our abilities, where we would otherwise have given up.
It 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 for us to give up.
