Fearful hope

Your heart skips a beat. You wonder at the possibility. You begin to dream. You begin to soar. Just as soon as you started to soar, you feel the tug. Fear checks in. You assess the reality around you. And then take stock of the impossibility. You dig your heel harder into the firm ground of reality.

It is better to be pleasantly surprised than to be disappointed.
