“Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper” (Sir Francis Bacon). Abundant hope upon arising, combined with massive immediate action is a powerful remedy to problems. Hope anticipates positive expectancy and resiliently perseveres through all obstacles. Embrace dedication mixed with determination, while discovering clarity of passionate singular focused desires. Choose one target, skill, principle, and value or life philosophy to learn at a time, going full throttle until it is achieved. Move on to another after that initial goal is won and done. Any virtue or skill can be developed, grown, and acquired through repetitive intentional practice.
Most importantly, live presently along the way being life happens as we are making other plans. Just breathe. Be happy with what you have and who you are right now, and always. Really, with eyes closed, sitting straight, arms resting on thighs, palms up, focus on your breath, thinking about something you’re grateful for—smile.
