In my previous articles I have spoken to issues that I believe are important to being able to create hope in our lives. Among theses are examining my relationship with hope, opening and moving through the door of hope, the need to confront denial, recognizing factors that seek to keep me from moving through the door, the impact of drama on hope, addressing generational messages that hinder hope, how to avoid bullying, owning our reality and not giving away our power.
In today’s article, I would like to speak to what I believe is essential to the process of creating hope in our lives. We don’t have to figure it out on our own. We can learn how to create hope in our lives by identifying with other people. Through realizing that I am not alone in the process of creating hope, I am able to open and move through the doors of hope, confront denial, make better choices, avoid being bullied, stop giving up my power to other people, places and things and stop believing that I am a victim of my circumstances.
The following is what I learned through: coming out of isolation, identifying with other people and creating hope in my life.
As I seek to identify with other people, I find that I am able to move out of the shadows of isolation and become comfortable in my own skin. Identification gives me the ability to love and accept myself. Identification helps me to celebrate my worth and value as an individual. Identification helps me to learn how trust in the process, a loving God and myself. Identification helps me to understand and experience comfort, courage and hope. Identification helps me to stop fighting against myself. Identification helps me to be myself.
Identification motivates me to not give up in the face of adversity. Identification empowers contribution, Identification encourages progress. Identification celebrates small successes, Identification encourages individuality and inspires self-expression. Identification cultivates creativity. Individuality is not considered a threat. Status quo is dismissed. Identification frees from a fear of failure. Identification musters enthusiasm in the face of any discouragement or disillusionment. Alienation is dismissed. Eccentricity is held in esteem.
Identification breaks down the walls of isolation. Self-respect, self-esteem, and self-worth no longer need be qualified. Value and ability is accepted at face value. Identification seeks to reconcile. Identification celebrates awareness. Identification encourages acceptance and action. As I seek to identify with others, I practice love and tolerance. Identification frees my ability to explore outside of comparison’s “box”. Identification encourages hope. Identification empowers promise. Identification motivates process and possibility.
Progress is accepted as a function of seeking to accept both others and one self. As I love and accept myself, I am free to be at peace with myself. Identification encourages love and tolerance. Identifications dispels my need to judge. Identification gives me the permission to take risks and to scrape my knees, as I learn from my process. Identification encourages a pursuit of excellence, not perfection. Identification frees me to stay in the moment. Identification empowers my ability to dream dreams, to create hope and to pursue my destiny,
