Today I would like to talk about The Hopefuls :) I frequently talk about the hopefuls, hopeful notes and Carrie Hope Fletcher on this blog, mainly because it has, over the last year ; become a massive part of my life <3 Many big YouTuber's have followers which are a fandom but the hopeful's are more of a lifestyle choice in which they choose to spread kindness, positivity and love to strangers and any individual that needs it, which in my opinion is everyone because everyone no matter what should be shown kindness because kindness is a reflection of you not the recipient <3 Around a year ago I discovered Carrie Hope Fletcher's YouTube channel, ItsWayPastMyBedTime . As a direct result I discovered a kind, compassionate young woman who's loving words were enough to inspire every person who watched her video's and to make them believe in their dreams deemed 'unachievable', once more :) That person was and is Carrie Hope Fletcher .
The Hopefuls are widely recognised as Carrie's followers . We are Mainly named so after her middle name 'Hope' but I and many other hopeful's think there is a lot more to it than that . There is no set definition of what or who the Hopeful's are but I asked hopefuls of the hopeful forum ( more on that later ) and from replies it's clear to see it means something different to every individual hopeful but it couldn't be more the same . For me, the hopefuls are people who are trying to show the same compassion to strangers and everyone around them as they have seen Carrie do and they are hopeful for a better, more positive, loving and accepting society as a result of that . It's clear to see that from projects such as the " Things I'll never say " and " The Hopeful Notes" All we want is kindness, happiness and a better world .
Above is the definition of Hopeful I found when I typed it into Google . As I mentioned previously every hopeful defines it differently, but here's my definition :
- Followers of Carrie Hope Fletcher spreading kindness as inspired by her projecting happiness and never-ending optimism about the future and pursuing her dreams .
- A group of people hopeful to change the world for better with kindness without one leader but a group of friends ; Carrie is not a leader but part of us , she also wants to spread happiness just like us .
- Hopefuls are pirates at sea with the world at their feet sailing on waves made of stars. Whom take only sadness from the ships of people passing by. On their travels, however long or difficult their own voyage is, they sprinkle a shimmering glitter into the dark ocean . It may not be much but Hopefuls a happy with the thought that maybe, just maybe ; it might be enough to give hope to those lost at sea <3
One of my favourite things about the hopefuls is how lovely and supportive they are as a community <3 You only have to read a few threads on the hopeful forum and you will see the love and kindness they project . I've never seen such a entirely un-judgemental group on the internet :) If you ever need support or advice just go to the hopeful forum because I promise they will do their best and will make you feel so so welcome <3
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) Stay Hopeful ^-^
( My best friend laughed at me when I called that last one 'the cute little internet face thingy-ma-bob' hehe )
Carrie Hope Fletcher has changed me and my life for the better <3 I have been inspired to be a better happier person and she pressed that button inside me that reminded me that I can achieve my dreams . You can do anything however impossible it seems... I mean anyone can do the possible, so where's the fun in that ? :) I've never been happier than I am right now, despite all the problems I'm facing. I am determined to stay hopeful because nothing makes me happier than watching a stranger pick up a hopeful note that I left and knowing that maybe just maybe it might be enough to give hope to those lost at
Much love, Love much-ly
