Living each day much muchier
Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.
Pope John XXIII
It’s not being endlessly hopeful that hurts, it’s the occasional crush of disappointment.
Still, isn’t it better to shine most of the time with a heart full of hope than spend the whole time second-guessing and fearing the worst?
It’s not looking out for the potential in people and circumstances that frustrates, it’s the dead end that stops you in your tracks and makes you say “Well … sh*t!”
Still, isn’t it better to keep a spirit of adventure than never to risk anything, or gain anything?
It’s not trying that makes you feel like a fool. It’s when you chalk up another failure and wonder what the point is of it all.
Failure isn’t the end of the story. It’s the seed of a new idea, a different approach and sometimes, a new goal altogether.
Sometimes it can take awhile for your heart to recover from setbacks. That’s okay, there will always be another path, waiting for you to find it.
