#TuesdayThoughts: Hope

April 28, 2015

What is hope? According to my Google Search, hope is..


1. a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.
synonyms: aspiration, desire, wish, expectation, ambition, aim, plan, dream, daydream, pipe dream;

2. want something to happen or be the case.
synonyms: expect, anticipate, look for, wait for, be hopeful of, pin one's hopes on, want; More

So why do we hope? What good do we get out of it? I guess hoping means getting a sense of control of what's about to happen. It gives us something to look forward to. It drives us to divert our energy to what we aspire for.

Hoped- That's what I did few days back. I hoped for something that will change my life. Something new to look forward to. More reason to keep going. But it wasn't the time yet. It wasn't my time yet.

Sometimes we hope for the most irrational things and when hope fails us, we get devastated. Hope shouldn't be played that way. It should be a beautiful thing. It should lead us to optimism that somewhere, someday, we'd get that thing we are all hoping for.

Below are a couple of things I learned from this experience:

1. Expect Hope. Look forward to it. Embrace it. Aspire it BUT never expect from it.
2. Cultivate Hope. Surround yourself with people who understand the same path you are hoping for. Read on. Educate yourself. Inspire yourself.
3. Provide Hope. For others and for yourself. A failed plan isn't always the end.
4. Act Like It. Live according to what you hoped for. Seize on moments of it.
5. Hold On to Hope. As long as there is hope, there's always something better to look forward to.

How did hope change your perspective in life?
