As you get coffeed up and ready to start this day, ask yourself how hopeful do you feel. Do you have high hopes? Are you envisioning a future that you’re working towards? Do you consider yourself a person with hope?
When I was younger I had too much hope. I hoped for all sorts of things. As I got older I began to see the other side of some of my hopes and they slipped away. Lately, I don’t think of myself as all that hopeful.
All I want nowadays is to be left alone and to do my work. I no longer hope for big financial success, Now I see that hope is a trap. Hope, for me, has been replaced by acceptance and gratitude. I accept that my career is what it is and I’m grateful for my gifts, but deep down, I still look for pigs that can fly. Even when I feel crushed by reality and feel that hope is something I used to have…..I find myself ready to believe that someday pigs will fly.
I guess that helps me to continue on a path that others jumped off of years ago. I’m unable to give up. So, I’m gonna finish my coffee and put on my Saturday face and begin that search again for floating pork.
Good luck out there today. If you feel that your hopes are lost, look deeper and up.
