When All Else Fails, Try Hope

Is it ever a good idea to give up hope?  I don’t think so.  Hope is allowing yourself to believe in something that does not exist in your reality.  That doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist at all.  It gives you a reason to go on when times appear to be especially bleak.  The operative word here is APPEARS.  Things often are not exactly as they appear to be.  We each have our own spin on events.  Two people could be standing right next to each other and witness the same event and come up with a completely different explanation. 

I believe that hope is the last thing to go, so to speak.  As long as we are alive, we are hopeful that things will turn out in our favor.  Could you imagine how terrible it would be if there was absolutely no hope of having the one thing you wanted in your life–ever?  I realize that sometimes this happens in “real life”.  Someone will die, so you know you won’t be able to call them up on the telephone to talk whenever you want.  But as far as your dreams for your own life go, there is always a world of possibilities and therefore hope.

Based on an observation of human life, I would say that some people give up on themselves as soon as they get some responsibilities.  There are two main roads:  get married or stay single.  If you get married, you then usually have extremely large shared bills, such as mortgages.  If you stay single, you might get a job right out of high school, and if it pays the bills, you might decide to stay there as long as you can because it provides health insurance.  You could also go to college, in which case you might run up large student loans you’ll be paying off for the next 10 years.  There are also car loans and other assorted bills that numb you to the reality of life. 

So, reality is not your bills or your debt.  Reality can be anything you want to make it.  If you end up with bills, should you give up on your dreams and what you want to do with your life to be a slave to money?  No.  You should take control of your life (while still letting the energy flow) and allow whatever is best for you to come in.  Most important of all, don’t let opportunities pass you by solely based on fear.  When you are so bogged down in the so-called reality of your life, that’s the time when you should let hope shine through. 

Have hope that something you can’t see right now can actually exist for you.  Take one small step towards that ephemeral vision.  Be positive, and let it in.  When all else fails, try hope.
