How can you be free from today?
Hope can set you free. A simple statement although one that may think is a distant one during these times. How do you keep hope alive? How do you live your life so hope can set you free from the pressures of the daily grind of life.
When looking for “hope” there is list of strategies that can bring light to your day.
Strategies to finding hope
The act of self-reflection when looking at art or listening music brings you to a place that there is another reality. A reality that celebrates the moment.
Another strategy is the listing of your successes and strengths. You have been in a different place, at a different time when things are riding high. By doing this simple list, there is a goal of looking at the good. Look to what has been positive.
Probably one of the most important pieces is to jump into helping others and be involved with a community. Volunteer, reach out, be accessible to others. Probably most importantly, surround yourself with positive people. By doing so there is a focus on things that will empower you.
How can art remind you of hope?
Of course, these may sound like easy things to do. However, I am left with the question of the role of art in this process.
How does art play a role in this pursuit of hope? How can art bring hope to you? This act of looking at thoughtful pieces of art, the simple act of listening to music, to searching out the beauty of the moment, all contribute to finding a space where Hope can set you free from the darkness. It brings you to other stories, other moments that celebrates life.
