Ep 9: HOPE + the power of poetry
What does it mean to be hopeful? This episode we’re finding hope, letting it go and sharing some beautiful writing on the subject. We also got to catch up with author Lucy Cuthew and, to celebrate National Poetry Day, we’re talking about the power (and pitfalls) of poetry.
This episode, we kick off with the words of Sophia Thakur:
‘Try to find space to hear what your heart says,
make it your best friend
Slow down and clock back into yourself
Give your heart a pen‘
–Sophia Thakur, Give Your Heart a Pen
