Hope is the fuel of our souls.

So you missed it:  the party of the century.  The trip of a lifetime.  The chance to meet your idol.

So you didn’t get it:  the acceptance letter.  The leading role.  The guy. The girl.

So you aimed and you missed.

So what?

Nothing is the be all or end all.  Nothing is do or die.  Nothing is your one shot at happiness.

There will be another chance soon.  And another.  And another.  And another.

And one day, one of those chances will land smack in the middle of that bulls’ eye you’re trying to reach.

Perfectly and gloriously in place.
