As you may know, I have been preparing for several months now to host the World Hopecast, which is happening this week! My sweetheart, Vicki, shared with me a thought that I wanted to pass along. She asked me a question that got me thinking about the difference between hope and wishing. When you hope for something to happen, there is a positive assumption behind it. When you wish for something to happen, the assumption is negative.
Hope is choosing to believe in a desired outcome that serves you well. It is a powerful catalyst of mental resilience and health. Wishing is based more in fantasy and magical thinking.
I hope that you will join us for the World Hopecast this week. Let’s combine our hope to instill hope in others and collectively boost the resilience of our species.
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
~ Desmond Tutu
