This is the 5th week of self-isolation and working mostly from home.
I have been thinking a lot about hope (especially, since the recent rejection of my application to promotion). I think hope is one force that helps us keep going when the conditions are particularly challenging. Whatever we hope for may not happen, but the thought of it happening gives us the wings. It also gives us the perseverance.
So we try. We try our best and take further steps towards the goal even though it is very challenging to get there. Pretty much like needing a miracle, sometimes.
When we get there, it is fantastic.
When we do not get there, it breaks our heart.
To hope or not to hope when the goal is not likely to happen – which one do you choose?
