Bringing Hope To The Season


We can add hope to others lives

We can add hope to others lives

According to Webster Dictionary the definition of HOPE is; 1. to wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment 2. To have confidence: TRUST, to expect to desire. 

Examples of hope would be: I hope you do well on the test. I hope he/she likes me or asks me out. I hope you feel better soon. I hope we win the game.
Hope is at the core of everything we do. We awake and go about our day with hope. We hope to be on time, for no traffic, for a promotion, for understanding, for patience.Where does hope come from? I believe we are all born with hope. As babies we saw something and tried. We tried to roll over, to crawl to walk and to talk. Then somewhere in life people begin to remove our hope. You will never make the team, if so-and-so didn’t. You will never get into that school.  You will never fit in.

What if our schools taught hope? There are countless individuals like Tony RobbinsJack Canfield, Brandon Steiner to name a few that are centered on if you believe it, you can achieve it. There are countless true stories of the underdog team that wins. Why?Because they never lost hope. If we could teach our youth to have hope, to look for the potential, we would breathe a new life into them. In 2008, my brother-in-law took his life. He had a family, money, a career, and no life-threatening illness. Yet he had no hope, no purpose. Life is so large if we live it. There is no way we have time to experience all there is if we live to be 100, but definitely not if we end it at 15, 18 or anywhere under 100.

If you know someone that has lost their hope, help them light a flame of hope. Help them find something to move towards in their life to give them hope. Breathe hope into someone that has lost theirs. “Hope is to purpose as air is to life.” ~ Cheryl Nordyke

  1. True. If we don’t have hope, there is nothing to carry us on to get us through the hard times. Thank you for your inspirations.

  2. Todays kids lose hope Quickly, because they are pushed to work harder at school. I was told by a parent that Kids of today in standard 1 & 2 are doing work that used to be done in standard 4 & 5. I saw a documentary about Japan, where the kids work ± 18hours a day with school work! The number of children who commit Suicide because they failed at school & feel they have embarrased their families.. NO Hope…
