Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.
For hope to exist, one must believe in the possibility of what is wanted.
For good to triumph over evil, we must believe that possibility exists.
To give birth to a healthy baby, a mother must believe that possibility exists.
To find the love of your life, one must believe the possibility exists.
To bring nations together in peace, one must believe the possibility exists.
To… well, I’m sure you get my point!
The possibilities of who we want to become or what we want to happen in our life are limitless. To tap into these limitless possibilities, one must overcome their biggest obstacle; what we believe to be true - especially the belief in oneself.
Once you realize that the wife, homemaker, employee, spouse, friend, mother, daughter, entrepreneur, homeowner and caretaker are parts of you but do not define you as a woman, you will open the door in your mind to the limitless possibilities that await you. And this creates hope!
When hope is present, you begin to see possibilities such as:
Now that you feel hope, a new door will be opened to you. This door will be full of limitless possibilities and opportunities and each opportunity will create choices. How will you choose in the face of these new opportunities? Will you choose to move forward, stay where you are or go back where you were?
Life Is All About Choices. Which door will you choose?
The urge to choose Door #1 can be strong because life behind that door is familiar to you, this is known territory. This is where we feel we have control in our life. This is also the place where hope feels lost.
Door #2 & #3 can create fear – a fear of the unknown. We create fear around what we do not know or understand because it gives us an excuse to stay where we are or retreat to where we were.
When our fear of staying where we are becomes less than our desire to move forward, door #3 will be the optimal choice. With our desire to move forward, comes hope!
