I read something on Social Media earlier this week and it wound me up. It was along the lines of hope is for losers and trying is passive. I know I shouldn’t pay much heed to things online but I thought back over the last couple of years in my own life.
It was hope (along with my family) that kept me going. If we don’t have hope we don’t have anything, we may as well give up.
As for trying being passive. That’s ridiculous. Trying is anything but passive. How can you know if you can do something is we don’t try? I’ve tried so many different things throughout my life. Somethings worked and some didn’t but you have to try.
Keep hoping and keep trying and if the things you hope and try don’t work just hope and try for something else.
There are strange things we read online… Hope + trying is very active – therefore you did everything right, Val.
