You know you can hope for something so much that you think it can become real. You can picture it in your mind. You can feel the way it would impact your life. You can really believe it will happen.

But then it doesn’t. And you come back to earth. And you realize you are the same person you were before you had that hope and that person will always be there. No matter what you think you want, no matter what you want and no matter how much you want it, you’re still the same person whether you get it or not.

The key is to be okay with yourself without that thing. If you don’t realize that hope, if it doesn’t materialize, if it turns out to be nothing more than a shadow of what could be, you are still you. It doesn’t change you.

Chances are that thing you hoped for wasn’t going to make that much of a difference of you as a person anyways. The important thing is to stay true to yourself and not get so focused on that hope that you stray from your belief system. If you find you are starting to change who you are to achieve what it is you are hoping for, that thing is not for you.
