Staying Hopeful can be a challenge but it helps me focus on what is possible rather that what is happening, How do you stay in Hope?
From Hate to Hope
Two little letters are all it takes to change us from hate to hope. It seems some people are more likely to get stuck on hate and what someone has done to them in the past, or what someone hasn’t done for them. In order to move forward from hate to hope they must first grow their vision and belief that the future can be better than the past or the present have been.
Hope speaks to us differently and reminds us that even if we’re feeling stuck or constantly working through hard things, that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. While it may be a blinding light at times or a candle flame at others, the light of hope is always there in some form if we’re willing to believe.
Life will be hard for all of us during different seasons, some of which may last much longer than others. When you encounter these seasons, I implore you to think like a victor, not a victim. Practice directing your thoughts toward hope, positivity, and the belief that something better is coming next in your life.
When I’m facing tough times, I focus on eliminating my excuses to help lead me to hope! Sure, there are always going to be details that are out of our control but there are going to be just as many that we can control if we’re willing to do the work and see the change through.
With everything going on in the world recently, I think it’s vital for us to look to the future together with a vision of hope and how we can all play our part in creating positive solutions. When I think of the words hate and hope, there’s just two tiny letters that make the difference. It can’t be that hard to move the AT to an OP, can it?
This week, as you encounter your next challenge, I encourage you to choose hope instead of hate. By making the conscious effort to choose hope versus hate in smaller aspects of our daily lives, we will have the ability to enhance our vision of the future and how we can make a difference as our newfound hope continues to spill over into even larger buckets!
