This turned out a little more Jack Handy Deep Thoughts than I wanted it to, but it’s a good definition of hope.
Typically, I’m not a fan of consequences. I rarely think of them as positive, although I know positive consequences exist. I probably take positive outcomes for granted. No, I only ever think of negative consequences. However, as long as there’s hope, we can bare negative consequences.
No matter how bad the situation, hope can bring us to a place of peace, and there life is often better than it was before.
I’m going to look for ways to live into hope. Here lately, I’ve been stuck in consequences, with no movement or change. The results have been stagnation, mental depression, frustration, and anger.
It’s easier not to change. Habits are tough to break. But hope can be just as powerful a force.
At least I hope so.
