Hope is not a strategy.

Hope is a selfish emotion — we look it to bolster our well-being.

Hope, it is convenient. It’s the nearest dopamine hit in a crowd of external placebos.

But hope is sometimes all we have. It never capitulates.

The reality is that good things happen — they just take time and a lot of patience and practice.

Just don’t expect hope to be as comfortable as the suburbs nor as empty as a fresh calendar.

Soon enough hope will fill up with a little bit of luck.
