I was reading up on Advent and what I was reminded of is the 4 weeks have a separate theme.
This week is Hope or Promise.
What is Hope?
Here is a definition:
“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.”
I like to try to be optimistic about everything. Like giving people the benefit of doubt instead of believing everything you hear or sometimes see. There’s ALWAYS more to a story…
To me being an optimist means, there’s options. Who doesn’t like options?
I think having hope is a promise for positivity.
