A Post of Hope: Kinzi-Inspired

So, while I might whine and moan about many things (you know like driving and inconsiderate people), I am at heart an optimistic person. I tend to try and see the good in life and definitely enjoy the ride. My own personal philosophy is One Way Or Another, It'll All Work Out. However, Kinzi takes this rose-colored glasses approach to all new levels these days and inspired me to write a post about things that give me hope. Hope is an awesome topic (why didn't I think of it all by myself?), so thanks Kinz for the inspiration. Here are things that give MommaBean HOPE:
  1. Happy chirruping and woohoo-ing of small Beans in the other room. A reminder that as long as children experience a childhood, there is HOPE for tomorrow.
  2. Making new friends, finding new people to connect with, being part of a community. A reminder that as long as people listen to one another, we have HOPE for changing lives.
  3. Comfort of old friends, knowing their love is true and their trials make you stronger. A reminder that old friends ground us and give us HOPE every day.
  4. Bloggers uniting, taking action, and providing for those less fortunate. A reminder that as long as we think about those who have less than we do, we can HOPE to improve the world.
  5. Flowers blooming and spreading their cheer. A reminder that God gives us beauty to inspire HOPE for peace.
  6. A smile on a strangers face, especially one that I've put there. A reminder that we are all connected and can HOPE for all men to realize this.
  7. Kindness of strangers, who see you in need and help, no questions asked. A reminder that what we do to other we can HOPE will return to us.
  8. Passion of youth, and the willingness to speak out no matter the cost to make their world a better place. A reminder that we were once young and the HOPE that we made a difference - and still can.
  9. Ability to think and reason, knowing God has given us this gift to use it. A reminder to HOPE that all men will use their gift to improve their lives and those of others.
  10. Blessed seasons of the year reminding each of us, in our own religion, of the gift that God has given us. A reminder that we have the HOPE of an afterlife.

MommaBean is blessed with overflowing HOPEFULNESS today. Grasp that HOPE with both hands and know that tomorrow is another day and with the right attitude and action, you CAN change the world.

Happy hoping!

Love this! Thanks for letting the inspiration flow, it was really heartening and made me stand up straighter.

I remember thinking that America's most valuable export was hope. Things have tarnished it, but I think there is still a lot yet to go around

Naser, Excellent to hear I have the support of two awesome guys. Kinzi, indeed we can still hope, even if our rep is a bit bad at the moment.
