Hope

Hope in its purest form is simply a desire to have a desire fulfilled, with a sense of anticipation that it may happen. The feeling of hope is exciting and allows us to dream, to see potential, and to think big. It sits in the middle territory between expectation and fantasy. Hope can guide us and feed our spirit when the world feels overwhelming—and it can be cultivated.
