Monthly Focus: Kids at Hope Month
Every November, we celebrate being Kids at Hope! It is the perfect time to reflect on how each of us grows hope in ourselves and those around us every day.
More and more research is confirming the importance of hope in one's experience with success and satisfaction in life. Hope is a skill that can be taught, learned, and strengthened. Kids at Hope do this in three ways:
Believe: Beginning with the belief that you are capable of success builds a strong foundation of hope. What we believe affects our thoughts, which affects are feelings, which affects the choices me make. If we believe we are capable of success, no exceptions, we find ways to be successful, no exceptions.
Connect: "You're only as good as the company you keep" is an old saying that remains true throughout generations. When you surround yourself with hopeful people, you can't help but be influenced and inspired by their attitudes and choices.
Time Travel: "When you have a why, you can bear with almost any how." ~Viktor Frankl
Hope grows when we can envision a future we want for ourselves and create a plan to get there. When we have a plan, we can prepare for and withstand any obstacles that get in the way. Seeing a future full of things we want motivates us and keeps us moving forward, especially when things get tough.
How will you believe, connect, and time travel to grow hope in yourself and in others this month and each month after?
