Audacity to Hope Day is observed on 4th June. The day lets the people dream with the audacity to have a hope that their dreams will be achieved in the future no matter what impedes their path.
The phrase “audacity to hope” is often linked by people with former President Barack Obama who wrote a book titled The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream. The book was published in 2006. However, don’t let the political nature of the book fool you. The book’s overarching theme is to defy the odds and have the audacity to effect change.
The day is, for and about everyone, at all times. Because even when things appear to be hopeless, some people persist in forging forward. Some people have the audacity to wish for a different, better future. The day is dedicated to all people who strive to achieve seemingly unachievable goals by hoping, trying, and working hard. It’s a day for all those who are in grave difficulties yet have hope for a better tomorrow.
How to observe Audacity to Hope Day
This is the ideal day to imagine the future you want and to have the courage to put plans in place to make it a reality. Make a hope board with your friends or family, listing the things you wish will come true. It’s a day to remember all those who have aspired in the past and to be inspired by their optimism. Hope may appear to be all you have left at times, yet it cannot be extinguished. “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things,” Andy Dufresne observed in The Shawshank Redemption, “and no good thing ever dies.”
