Thought of the Day – Hope

Thought of the Day – Hope

Last week’s ‘thought of the day’ was – smile. The next thing I got from Thich Nhat Hanh’s book – ‘Peace is every step‘ is – hope.

I am a hopeful person. I am someone who hopes that everything will work out in the end. Indeed one of my mantras is that everything DOES work out in the end.

We say things like:

‘Let’s hope for the best’

‘Hopefully it will be ok / Hopefully it will work out’

‘I hope it won’t be too long…’

Thich Nhat Hanh states:

‘If you can refrain from hoping, you can bring yourself entirely into the present moment and discover the joy that is already here’

Is hope an obstacle which stops you being in the present moment?

Whilst I want to enjoy every moment I have on this earth, I don’t think there is anything wrong with hoping!

For me, to hope is to keep positive, to work towards my goals, and to know that everything will work out in the end!

What do you think?
