Hold on to Hope.

12 Apr

Day_018

It’s an Easter Sunday like no other. We’re on Day 18 of lockdown, and our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern gave a great message of hope to the nation, granting the Easter Bunny (along with the Tooth Fairy) essential worker status. It was a moment of light hearted loveliness which made the chocolate loving children of New Zealand squeal with delight.

Hope allows us to believe there’s an illuminated pathway leading to a more desirable outcome.

Hope is a magic dispeller of despair.

Hope cheers us on somewhat, encouraging us to go the distance.

Don’t be surprised if it feels a little tough coming into the third week. The mundaneness and lack of pick me ups can make it a bit boring and lacking in the joy department. Rather than critically overly examining or picking our lives to pieces, it’s more spirit lifting to mix things up a bit, add pops of fun, and look to add some value and connection to the day.

I’m hopeful you will notice as many glimmers of goodness as you can. Read things that cheer you up, aim for a belly laugh or two, express gratitude to those displaying kindness and remember that no time is ever wasted patting something furry.

No matter what our faith, let’s hold on to hope, and trust that positive renewal of some kind will be a part of our collective future. Happy Easter x

According to Wikipedia – Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes with respect to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large. As a verb, its definitions include: “expect with confidence” and “to cherish a desire with anticipation.”
