Hope. Hope for blue skies. Hope your knees won’t give out during your halfpipe ride. Hope nobody will snap up the last piece of strawberry pie before your very eyes. Fear that what you hope for won’t come true is an integral part of the hope principle. There’s not much we can do about that – trying to actively give up hope doesn’t work as hope oftentimes is beyond our reach. That’s actually quite all right, once you think about it.
