Expectation vs. Hope

“But there’s a difference in these words expectation and hope. When I expect something, I’m nearly certain it will arrive. When I hope for something, I am less sure about it. My expectations around the season are tactical, what will happen where and when. My hopes go deeper. Perhaps expectations are how we want things to happen and hopes are the desired lasting effects for relationships, memories, and growth.”
