“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”
This quote is very true indeed. You can also make them in whatever sequence you want. The something to hope for can be at the first sequence because if you don’t have those two things yet that supposed to complete your happiness you can always stay hoping in finding the someone that you can love and also hope at really finding what you really want to do.
That just tells us that “hope” or something to hope for is the most important and should be in the first sequence of being truly happy although you can’t be truly happy if you don’t have the three of them. But if you have the hope you will not stop in believing that you will have the two things that will make you truly happy no matter how hard and how long it takes.
Also once you find the someone that you will love and the something that you really will enjoy doing – it doesn’t mean that you can stop hoping for something else. That is another good thing about hope, you can put it in the beginning and you can put it at the end. When something ended, hope will always make you hope for something to begin with.
If you really believe that you are truly happy already because the first two things in the sequence are already achieved then the something to hope for is always there to hope for something better to add more meaning on your happiness. You can always hope for a new place to travel, a new people to meet, a new skill to develop and a new idea to implement. Hope can be the beginning of anything that can add to your happiness. It’s really important to have the three of them, but keep the something to hope for in consistent practice.
If for some reason you had a broken heart, you can always hope that you will find the true love that you are hoping for and if a something you thought you will enjoy doing end up boring or something that you realized was not the something that will keep you excited, then again you can always hope for the best to come. Hope is really powerful, it keeps the cycle moving and it keeps the possibility of being truly happy as long as you don’t lose hope.
Will you agree with me that hope is the most important to make you truly happy or at least stay believing for a possible true happiness? In what sequence do you place your hope, at the beginning or at the end of the sequence?
