Hope is not a strategy.
Hope is also a selfish emotion — we look it to bolster our well-being.
Hope is convenient. It’s the nearest dopamine hit in a crowd of external placebos.
But hope is sometimes all we got. It never capitulates. Good things take time and a lot of 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.
