Love Your Expat Life

Mar 17, 2022

In this series, I've been talking about the choices we have, even in the face of unthinkable situations like a pandemic or a war.

In Episode 42, I shared with you the first choice we all have which is to direct your thoughts on purpose to create calm if you wish to do so. In Episode 43, I shared with you the second choice to accept and even process your anxiety if you wish to do so.

Today I would like to offer that we have the choice to move  between despair and hope. 

Here are the highlights:

Why our brains naturally focus on worst-case scenarios
What it means to be a "hopeful" person
Is despair written in your DNA?
Why cultivating hope is important — and possible
The three axes of optimism
