Hopeless or Hopeful, today give Yourself permission no matter which space You are at.
I know there are many of You who are Hopeful for many different reasons. Hopeful you will get married, buy a house, have a family and live happy ever after.
Nevertheless, we are faced with obstacles along the journey which can challenge us to the point of being Hopeless.
I would like to encourage myself and others to persevere. Only God knows the beginning from the end. We make a plan, set a goal or have a dream to pursue.
We get up day in and day out and keep pushing forward and at times, the plan comes to completion, yet in other situations it seems we hit a wall.
The anticipation and expectation of our desires being fulfilled is absolutely unnerving. Stress may set in, then doubt and if you let yourself give in, you want to give up. These are the times when voices from the past or present come.
This will never happen, it is taking too long, everyone is talking about you, your a failure, she/he thinks they can do or be something, they are dreaming. May I suggest it may be wiser to not share all your hopes. Keep them as a private secret in your heart.
If you tell your secret others voices can steal your hope with their opinions, input and what they call advice.
Today’s society is suspicious of everything and everyone. Negativity is in the air it seems. If you have a positive outlook and are self-confident you can make progress and achieve your goals, be assured people will question and become suspicious of you.
The desire to achieve your dream must be so strong you are able to withstand the stress of attack. This stress will test every aspect of your life. Your health, your emotions, your will, and try to crush your Hope. I want to encourage you not to give up Hope.
Being Hopeful takes courage and strength. The length of time it takes to accomplish Your own Plan is nobodies business. The process You had to go through to get there is nobodies business.
The obstacles You faced and overcame to get to Your Dream is nobodies business. Those ‘nobodies’ can be as close to you as immediate family, however, You did the Work not them.
There is a saying: Don’t Judge Me Until You Walk A Mile in My Shoes. I feel every person on the planet has their own unique story. Each one as important as the next. Yet I suggest to you if you are surrounded by people who question you about everything and place doubt into your Plan, Dream or Vision, keep it inside You and stay Hopeful.
Being hopeful is rare today. If you walk down the street and smile at someone you do not know, well just be careful. The atmosphere of suspicion has distorted society.
Each face has a story behind it and you do not know if they were once hopeful and now they have given up and are hopeless.
Well, I hope I have given you something to think over. I have days when I am very hopeful. I also have days when I question everything because it does take courage to be hopeful. Actually, the strength I use to stay hopeful can be draining at times. BUT it is my choice to stay hopeful.
Do I get tired, Yes. Do I get questioned by people, ‘why don’t you give up on that issue, Yes. However, it is my life, my dream, my plan and if it is in my head, I will not give up. I will remain Hopeful.
Take Care Google Friends.
