Hope requires us to learn to the embrace uncertainty over certainty, to recognize that the future is unknowable, and to admit that we have the power to change the world if we choose to act. The future is not set in stone, but it is malleable, porous, and shifting. The future contains a multitude of possibilities, some of them wild and not quite realized yet and some beyond what we can imagine right now. -Rebecca Solnit
“People,” Solnit explains, “have always been good at imagining the end of the world, which is much easier to picture than the strange sidelong paths of change in a world without end.”
Imagining ends feels easier than imagining and working toward a better version of our world we have now. Solnit shows us that we all have the ability to bring about change, but that change might not end up being what we imagined it to be.
Go for positive change today.
