Want the Good Life?…Have Hope.


Without hope, life can feel so gloomy. Hope provides a feeling that there is something better, something good that can happen to you. Hope can provide a more positive internal experience in the now and can also promote the likelihood of good experiences (internally and externally) happening in the future.

Therese J. Borchard writes about increasing your hope in this article: 3 Quick Ways to Cultivate Hope

Also, having a calm, sensitive, somewhat-on-the-depressive side demeanor or personality is not all bad. Check out Therese J. Borchard’s article about Eeyore vs Tigger personalities: 3 Reasons We Need Eeyores in This World

Having an Eeyore or a Tigger personality is okay. In a family, everyone adds their own individuality to the mix. This is okay. It can cause conflict or disagreements at times, but it can also make for a happy and unique family in which everyone celebrates and cherishes each other and the differences that come with being human rather than fighting against the fact that your other family members don’t act and think exactly the way you do.

Thanks for reading.
