For me, hope is one the most important mental traits in life, which for some time I overlooked. Keeping hope has allowed me to face and get through some of the most dark times in my life.
We all face setbacks. We all wonder at times whether we’re going to get by. We all know what it’s like to feel that we are on the verge of a complete disaster.And many of us know what happens when we are not hopeful at such times.
Hope is not blindly expecting every good fortune to fall into your lap, nor expecting yourself to magically avoid every hurdle or potential danger. Hope with Action is the key to driving forwards.
During my recovery from my Epileptic attack in 2014, I lost hope for a while and sure enough there was no improvement in my condition. I really had to change my mindset to believing and hoping it would get better but also putting in the time into my physio.
Even to this day, I hope that I will not be in physical pain every day and that one day they will be able to reduce my medication. Hope allows me to wake up every day and give the day my best even when I don’t feel like it.
Hope gives you the motivation. Hope is that voice inside that says “Yes, you can.” And it’s the voice that makes you work harder, learn new things and gives you the impetus to actually try.
Never lose your hope!
