Espoir is the French word for hope.  Hope is the essence of a positive life. Hope is what has allowed millions to endure unendurable conditions.  Hope has brought success  and happiness to many who have ‘failed’ in their many attempts at success and happiness.

This week, if the opportunity presents itself, take yourself out to nature; if you live in the city, a park or your back garden will suffice. Nature has an abundance of effortless hope, regrowth and renewal especially now in Springtime.  If you happen to see a beautiful butterfly  or a bird or even a flower, take a mental snap of the image and make a conscious link in your mind with “espoir”.  Bring this image to mind as you go about your week especially if you feel tired or overwhelmed; the image will become embedded in your subconscious and you can simply bring it to mind as and when you need to access positive feelings. After all, as with all natural things we have the ability to heal and renew ourselves with each breath we take.
