Why hope?

More than a feeling

I never thought of myself as a "hopeful" person until I read the work of C.R. Snyder, former researcher at the University of Kansas.  Snyder's research suggests hope is a cognitive process we can learn; people who exhibit hope demonstrate the ability to:


1. Set realistic goals

2. Develop an adaptable plan to achieve those goals

3. Believe that they can achieve them


Armed with this new definition I came to understand, I am full of hope!  And now, I can share that hope with others who are struggling to achieve a balanced life in the midst of chronic pain and illness.
