Hope..... what a wonderful thing...
Can you effect the outcome in anyway? No? Then do not hope, it will only take away from you. Stop thinking about it and move forward.
Can actions you take turn the tide toward you? Yes? Then hope and act! Mixing focus with positive emotion can create positive action and change.
Not everything is within our control and not every hoped for outcome is a possibility but we should always hope for brighter futures, no matter how unlikely, as long as there is a CHANCE. Be realistic, know what can or can't be. Some situations cannot be shifted but if there is a chance they could be....direct your focus, energy and emotions towards your desire and you will be motivated to take action. Action is what will get you there. Hope is the tool we use to motivate ourselves. Action is the magic wand.
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
