Day 3214: What gives you hope?

Because hope is so important, I’ve written several posts about hope (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) since I started this Daily Blog in 2013.

Yesterday, I noticed hope at the Boston hospital where I work.


And last night, I asked a question about hope on Twitter.


Do my other images for today give you hope?

It gives me hope that the Daily Bitch and I have so much in common.

When I search for “what gives you hope?” on YouTube I find this,



… and this.

What gives you hope?

Kind people like you give me hope every day, so thanks for visiting my blog, here and now.

  1. I hope our country can come together, Ann.

  2. Debbie T

    Hahaha I have those nested plastic bags too!

  3. Mia and her family, and all similarly strong people, give me hope. Sadly, Mia died at the age of 9.

    Freedom gives me hope.

  5. How is the Jackie Chan book? I am thinking of getting it for my brother.

  6. When the IRC is able to address hope, I know I have nothing to complain about. I think there is always hope that whatever the source of fear or stress or worry or despair…if I look back upon my life I realize I’ve navigated other deep troubled times, and come through. That gives me hope for NOW.

  7. The fact that things have gotten progressively better for LGBT people, in spite of some setbacks and attempts to strip them of the rights they’ve gained, gives me hope. And while it didn’t happen soon enough for some the fact that it’s happened so quickly–we went from the AIDS crisis to same-sex couples winning the right to marry in less than half a century–gives me hope that we can all come together for a better world.

  8. people who listen and learn laugh and are kind for no reason other than because they just are and just do – give me hope

  9. “As long as we have hope, we have direction, the energy to move, and the map to move by. We have a hundred alternatives, a thousand paths and an infinity of dreams. Hopeful, we are halfway to where we want to go; hopeless, we are lost forever.”- Lao Tzu
