Hope is a fragile and nebulous thing. It’s important to cultivate a glimmer of hope, a light in the darkness, and to look forward to something.
In this episode, Mark and Anya discuss the topic of hope. They explore the difference between hope and expectation, and the importance of finding and offering our best response when facing concerns. Anya shares her personal experience of despair and how hope helps her to carry on. They also touch on gratitude, active hope, motivation and goal setting.
