Is Hope A Strategy?
What Do You Think?
I really think it is. At the very least, Hope is getting me through some very tough times!
I read it was *not a strategy but I kind of think along the lines you do. Not to say it's the *best strategy; however sometimes it all you've got!
Not a conscious strategy, but a spontaneous survival mechanism.
I don’t think so. There’s a lens that I’ve looked through that showed this, but it showed everything to be a strategy. It didn’t feel like the whole picture. The whole picture to me leaves room for spontaneous inspiration, connection, beauty, grace and endless possibilities. There’s just things that are out of our range of awareness and hope acknowledges that. It’s honest and I think strategy has a dishonesty to it.
Interesting... I must be meant to ponder this theme because it's the second time it is put on my radar today.
Earlier today I came upon this quote, which is a character in a novel speaking:
Personally, I have never been able to (fully/truly) subscribe to "hope". But I have been changing my values, beliefs, strategies, coping mechanisms, behaviors, you name it - in the last few years. Maybe I need to now reconsider this thing called "hope".
