A lot of people suspend their happiness because they’re yet to come to terms with the reality of their lives and its present possibilities.
Hope is much more beautiful to them because it’s unfractured by reality, so they bask in the future they do not know and the promises it may or may not hold. This is not a preparation for that future but a way to cope with losing out of today’s battles.
One truth that life, small successes and an equal amount of failure, and death have taught me is that life is best lived right now.
This moment is the most tangible gift we have, and what we do with it matters the most.
