One of the core parts of my resilience is hope. From hope comes courage, motivation, and the will to try. From hope, also come the ability of being gentle and honest with myself. It impacts my belief in myself. It is the foundation I used to rebuild my life and myself.

Every obstacle I have ever faced since I was child I survived through hope.  One of my favorite phrases is “Hopefully {insert desire}.” My hope causes me to do everything in my power to make my desire(s) to come to fruition. For me hope translates into thoughts and action, sometimes out of my conscious awareness. Even when I was at my wits end and didn’t know what else to do, something in me always knew that I would make it out and that part of me unconsciously went to work. When I had conscious thoughts that wanted to give up, a quiet voice inside of me always said, “That’s not how this going to end.” Whenever I am exhausted and drained, something inside of me always keeps going because of the underlying belief that I will get where I need to be and that I can handle whatever is in front of me. It was never a lot of hope, only a little bit, that seem to be good enough. There were times when I had only one shred of hope and that was enough to get me through. Even now when I face new obstacles I always say, “I don’t know how but I’m going to figure it out cause somehow I figured it out in the past.” Now the voice of hope is louder and stronger since I started tuning into it more.

Am I saying that only hope is going to magically fix all of your problems? No but it can fuel you and your motivation in the smallest of ways. It can jump-start a chain reaction within your internal world and the external world. You may not even notice it at this point but when you look back you would probably be able to see it in its entirety.

Time to Focus on You:

See where a little hope can get you
