“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

Affirmation: Hope lights up my life

My days are filled with happiness and purpose.

I cultivate gratitude. I notice the pleasant events and valuable opportunities that greet me each day. I keep a journal of things I am thankful for and express my appreciation out loud on a regular basis.

I give generously. Volunteering in my community or doing favors for my neighbors builds my confidence. My actions prove that I can make a positive difference in the world.

I set compelling goals. I focus on the things I can control. I channel my energy into constructive activities.

I surround myself with positive influences and support. I spend time with family and friends who lift my spirits and challenge me to reach my potential. I select mentors and role models who inspire me to keep trying.

I monitor my media consumption. I get my information from trusted sources. I limit my exposure to disturbing news or social media posts. I turn off my computer and put away my phone, so I can relax before bedtime.

I practice self-care. A healthy lifestyle reduces my stress levels and makes me more resilient. It is easier to be cheerful when I avoid becoming too hungry or tired.

I rely on my faith. I remember that hardships are temporary. Prayer and meditation help me to see the light shining through the darkness.

Today, I have high hopes. I look on the bright side and keep moving forward. I am confident that I can attain my goals.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How does being hopeful affect my physical health?
2. What is the relationship between hope and motivation?
3. What is one opportunity that I am excited about today?
