Ways to create a HOPE Box
Many items hold tender memories. When you gather these items, that collection is a hope box. Any object that makes you trust that you are loved is worthy of being in your hope box. Visit the hope box you create to remind you of your brilliance.
You can gather items like letters, cards, or printed email from loved ones who encourage you, lyrics to a special song, stones or jewelry that have been gifted to you, quotes from mentors or inspirational figures, Bible verses that live in your heart, or mementos from travel, and put these items into a shoe box.
You can create a picture album on your phone that includes warm and tender memories, or joy filled times where you felt connected to loved ones like vacations or parties.
You can gather proof that you are amazing! Awards or acknowledgments or art that you have created, or any item that was celebrated by loved ones, and put these items in a box or take pictures of the items and store them in your phone.
