They say kids represent the hope for a better future.
Hope is something we can point to. That if we get here, things can get better.
While it is hope that gets us through the dip, hope that sustains us when we are tired, hope that helps us persevere–hope, while necessary, isn’t the only space to live in. If we are always escaping and turning to hope, we are missing the opportunity to live in the moment now.
