Today I am thankful for hope. The dictionary defines “hope” as “the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.” This is an ideal that I find myself holding on to quite a bit, especially during this time of my life. There seem to be so many things that have surfaced all at once in my life lately, and were I not a person of hope and faith who knows what state I would be in right now. Thankfully, though, I know firsthand that there is always hope, and I know that everything will always work out in my favor.
Sometimes people may not understand the certain hope and positive outlook that I possess, and I do not fault them for that. We have all had different experiences, which have yielded different outcomes. And when people ask me what my secret to maintaining such a positive outcome is, I tell them that it’s because of my faith, the hope that I have, and my refusal to allow myself to entertain any thoughts that attempt to rob me of that hope that I am able to maintain a positive outcome no matter the circumstances. And, yes, sometimes this can pose a substantial challenge, however, I actively choose to believe and know that I will always be the beneficiary of great experiences, relationships, and more. I refuse to accept anything less.
I do not notice people speaking about hope very often, so I am not really sure as to how much people consider this topic. But I strongly encourage everyone out there to come to know hope for yourself and to protect it, nourish it, and allow it to revolutionize your life. It will not let you down, and you will never want to let it go. #lovebythedrop
