I declared my intention seven years ago to spread Hope and inspiration around the world. I must say it has been amazing to watch it unfold as each day I sit down to write a Hopeful Note to share with you.

There are about 250 working days in each year. So I now have a portfolio of over 1700 Hopeful Notes.

Each one written with the intention of spreading Hope and Inspiration.

Hope to me is not blind optimism nor is it some random thought about the world.

I believe the world needs Hope and so I want to do my part to make it a more hopeful place.

There is work to do here.

We all have a part to play. I could ask you to send these Hopeful Notes on the your closest friends and ask them to subscribe, no better yet you subscribe for them, but that is not what I am going to do.

You know in your heart what your part is to play in bringing Hope and Inspiration to our world.

When you surrender your ego you will be able to hear clearly the voice of your heart.

Your contribution will be clear and you will undertake the action to make our world a better place.

With awareness of who you are, you become the beacon of Hope.

Know that and let it be so.

The essence of Hope is in your soul. I know it is in mine.

So let’s start a big movement of Hope and Inspiration simply by opening our hearts and using our good minds to move forward.

I’ll keep writing.

What will you do today?

This is who you are.
