Never HOPE for it more than you WORK for it

There are times that I get so consumed hoping and dreaming for something in life. I get frustrated about things that I CAN change, but haven’t taken the time to do so!

I have decided that I am going to change my mindset, I want to astonish people. Not by telling them my hopes and dreams, but by actually DOING the thing and letting the THING speak for itself. The THING is lots of things really, everything from learning a new language, to running a half marathon to performing in a West End Show.

I have learned so much recently from some personal development books I have been reading, the idea that little habits we do each day create our lives intrigued me. So I am changing up my habits. I will no longer hope, the time for DOING is now.

One of the things on my list of hopes and wants was to begin this very blog, that is why I am here. I want to inspire and hopefully help some people with their own lives along the way. Here I am, taking ACTION.

Everything we want in life when looked at as a whole can be overwhelming, yet it can all be broken down into bite size chunks.

I hope to astonish people, to affect their lives in a meaningful way. So it is time to work for this ‘thing’. In this case, the bite size chunks are obvious; find a great blog website, create a domain, just write! Finding inspiration and just WORKING for it, no longer mindlessly hoping.

Now it is your turn, what do you hope for? What do you spend hours thinking about?

Begin now, break down that ‘want’ into bite size pieces and start taking steps towards what you want in life.

Begin, keep working EVERYDAY and be patient. It will happen if you make it happen.


  1. Dear Lauren,

  2. “Never hope for it more than you work for it” that’s my new morning mantra.

    Thank you for the inspiration. I’m excited to follow your blogging journey!

    With love,
    Chelsea Rose 🌹

  3. A beautiful blog Lauren, thank you.
    I shall ponder over what I’m just talking about and not DOING – and make a change.

  4. Very true, beautifully expressed. I admire the way you set goals, strive to achieve them and take any set backs in your stride, using the experience to move on. Keep doing the thing!!
    See you soon xxx
