Hope might be described as wanting something to happen. Wanting, however, can be experienced as grasping and reaching…and then disappointment when it does not come to pass in the way we expected. We might be better served if we think of hope as openly holding space for what is possible and trusting that we can navigate whatever unfolds.
In mindful presence,
Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.
―Martin Luther King, Jr.
