Even though I tend to drift into my thoughts more and more these days, I’m always reminded to see the positive in things. Even when I don’t have the answers to the questions that nag at the back of my mind, I persevere. I guess I’m just naturally hopeful in spite of myself.
It boils down to the whole “not knowing” aspect of life. It’s hard to make decisions about the direction you wish to take your life when you’re not sure why you make decisions in the first place. Even so, it’s comforting to know the questions that plague my thoughts are nothing new. They’ve been asked by people great and small for all of human history. I guess certain things just cannot be contained by the human mind. No matter how hard I try, I can’t wrap my brain around the concepts that define us. It’s almost ridiculous to say, but coming to terms with existence is something we all face on an individual level. Sure, you hear about the plight for understanding existence, but how often have you actually sat down and thought about it?
But I am rambling and that is never productive. The positive here is regardless of how hopeless it all seems, hope is all I can do. After all, we live our lives with determination and the ever forward-looking glance of optimism. It’s always about plans and goals. That’s inherently hopeful. There’s always tomorrow, after all.
