Hope is in the future, experience resides in where we are right now.
I encourage you to be hopeless. I am not talking about depression, anxiety, or dread about the future. You don’t have to abandon hope but I do encourage you to give more attention and awareness to where you are right now. Hope can pull us through tough times but it can also distract us from what we need to do right now. If you want a bountiful garden make sure you plant the seeds, water the plants, and pull the weeds. I hope this advice was helpful without me relying simply on hope that you would get the message.
