What Does It Mean to Live With Hope

Love, Hope and Faith go together

What does it mean for you to live with Hope?

Live with hope and not hopelessness is the way to forgive and have a healthy life. You can't live hopeless in an empty shell while thinking of the past. Move on and create a hopeful life from positive thoughts and be hopeful in all you do for yourself. When you are hopeful, you feel that is what makes you feel better.

It is true to feel that way. A hope in your life makes everything feel possible. Improve your life in living with hope each day. Step by step and it will happen for you. I know that hope is not part of everyone’s life.

People hope for something to feel better and it is normal to hope. However, some people don't want to think of hope. They give up on hope too easily.

It is part of who we are to hope and want to hope for the better. Our lives depend on hope and without hope we are hopeless, and helpless in some ways.

How would you define hope?

The definition of hope is defined according to the one who is explaining it to you. Hope is spoken in a spiritual context by many individuals, and this means to believe, to have faith in what will happen for you. It is a higher power that gives this release of direct hope. In prayer you hope for the better in your life.

I am filled with hope and positive thoughts about my lifestyle changes in Croatia. No matter what goes wrong I spring back with hope.

There’s no other way about having life than to be positive and hopeful in everything I do here. For some people hope is looking at life in a positive way, or on the bright side of life.

Whether it is a high power, or looking at the bright side of life in hope, we are all affected by it. You hope for the best, you face up to challenges in the hope it will work out, and this is what makes you feel stronger and faithful.

Hope has nothing to do with optimism.

If you are an optimistic person you see life in many other ways and focus on the positive note. A pessimistic individual is hopeful and will focus on the hope of one specific focus.

For example:

‘’ I hope I get that online job.’’

‘’I hope for a better salary.’’

Hope Is So Vital!

In difficult situations you hope for the better. Hope provides you with a better thought in each day, and makes each day feel happier.

A child opens a gift with a smile that makes you feel happier. That is a moment of hope and happiness. The little moments you experience gives you hope. In a better thought of you having a better life, from a bad childhood experience makes you grow with hope.

Hope creates a mind that is determined and motivated by your actions. Children growing up from a poverty stricken life grow with hope to become successful later in their lives.

To you hope is connected in your life from your past, the present, and the future. This is a vision you have that something good will happen to make a situation better.

Hope motivates you to go on and have what you want for your life to improve in the future. If someone says they hope for nothing that person is not a happy one. They are depressed or negative.

It is part of our lives and we can’t change that. As long as you hope for something better it tells you that your path is to the light. It is a way out as in seeing the light at the end of a tunnel.

Anything can be, if you let it be with hope and love. Try to figure out what you want to hope for and have that hope for each day. Living in hope is courageous and motivating to you.

Can you live beyond what you are capable of?

You never stop hoping for better. In life you get what is expected and what is expected of you. What you do for others is a legacy and what you do for yourself slips by you.

Do not lose hope, having hope makes you feel stronger each day. A powerful part of your life is to hope and be alive from within. Hold hope inside of you as you would hold a lit up candle.

What do you need to hope for in your life?

To be hopeful, to have love and to be faithful are three factors of your life. Live for the moment as in now and focus on hope in all times. When you love someone you are hopeful and feel better.

You are at peace with yourself when you have hope.

When you feel all is out of control you pause for some time and think about your situation.

Again you think of hope.

What are your reasons to be hopeful?

Being hopeful is an act of happiness. Despite the dark side of your life being hopeful means a lot to look forward to better days. You want to cope with your problematic life and hope allows you that opportunity to feel good.

Hoping and wishing are not the same.

Wishing is a fantasy, hope is a focus on one specific matter. This is a goal when replacing traumatic experiences and painful emotions with hope. Thinking along these emotions you feel from the bad experience.

A good sense of humor gives you hope.

When you laugh about something, be it a comedy movie, or a joke, it makes you feel hopeful. Experience more hope from your goals. You are who you are and not what you experience.

It doesn’t mean that you are that depressive person. You experience depression and stand against it, but it isn't in your control. Having each other gives us hope to live on with whatever is thrown at us.

It is hard work to create hope.

Learn a new skill, take on classes to learn a different language, in this you find hope for yourself. In these goals you will have obstacles, but that is a good sign to move on with new skills. Hope gives you these opportunities.

Let go of the past and create new memories to be hopeful. A sense of possibility and a great sense of perception is to have hope. Directly related to our possibilities and to feel despair as well as hopelessness.

How Hope Affects Our Minds And Bodies?

You do not heal when you are not hopeful. Hope is filled with energy, living, and it is the way of life. An ability that is created by the brain promoting high levels of dopamine, endorphins and other neurochemicals, allowing for an energized well being.

Hope is real not a fantasy.

You can fake being an optimistic person but you can’t fake being hopeful. Surviving the moment is crucial and you do this with hope. Hope is recognized in cultures, families and in every challenge one takes on in each day. It is serious to be hopeful and feel good in what you want for yourself.

Hope is for you

I know some people who are hopeless because their situation seems so bad they can't see a way out. But I know that the hopeless attitude makes it seem worse than it is.

Blessings,

Denise

Your article is very inspirational. I do feel people give up on hope too soon.

Adrienne Farricelli I feel hopeful every day and it is important for us to be that way. Always hope for something to be better and it will be. There you are ''hope never dies.'' Thank you for sharing that.

Adrienne Farricelli on April 09, 2021:

When I was raised in Italy, I got familiar with a special saying: "Hope never dies." When I endured moments of feeling discouraged, my mom often encouraged me with this saying. I think it's true and hope really can help up live better and can help make positive changes in our lives.

A lot about hope here. If it's separate from Brenda's prompt, then fine. We can all have similar ideas. However, if you were inspired by her prompt, then perhaps you may wish to mention her in some way.

Other than that, you have done a wonderful Job. Much Love.

Lots of aspects of hope here, Devika! You've covered the whole gamut. I believe that hope keeps us going. If we give up on our hopes and dreams, then what's left? Nothing!

You also suggest how to keep our hopes alive - a useful reminder of how good life can be.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on April 06, 2021:

A very well written article about ‘Hope.’ I liked how you differentiated Hope with regard to optimism or fantasy. And I also agree with you, when you say that, without hope, we are hopeless and helpless.

Thank you for an insightful article about this important term.
