Should we feel guilty about being hopeful?
Some people will tell us that audacious optimism is inappropriate in times like these. What do YOU think? Is it possible to have “too much hope”?
All positive change begins with hope. After all, isn’t “hope” the very thought that something better is possible?
“Hope” as a noun is the yeast that allows us to rise.
It’s when we lean on “hope” as a verb that we can get lazy. “I hope things get better. I hope this works out.”
- What if “hope” is not something to do, but something to have?
- What if we give ourselves permission to hang on to hope, especially when the night is long and the odds seem stacked against us?
- What if we meet that hope with courage, wisdom, and inspired action?
Hope without action is hollow. But action without hope is in vain.
