Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. In a religious context, it is not considered as a physical emotion but as a spiritual grace. Hope is distinct from positive

thinking, which refers to a therapeutic or systematic process used in psychology for reversing pessimism. The term false hope refers to a hope based entirely around a fantasy or an extremely unlikely outcome.

Good day MM! I wasn't sure if you heard about Cosmo (the magazine) teaming up with the Melanoma Research Foundation. They currently have a fundraiser to raise money for a research grant. I thought it was great and wanted to share it with you. Hope all is well.
