Of all the abilities we must cultivate during tough times one of the most important is hopefulness. The ability to foresee a time in the future that will be better is important to making that future happen. However, this hope must not be blind or paralyzed.

The hope we need to employ is an active hope, a hope of realism. Hoping to be rescued from bad times by gifts and circumstances outside our control is wishful thinking.

Constructive hope comes from understanding that our actions do change our world. The hope that we can change our situation is the spark that gives flame to determination.

Be hopeful, be happy and keep working,
