Quick Thought
On Enthusiasm

It seems like every time I manage to get enthusiastic about something, it all falls apart for some reason. So, lesson number one: never get your hopes up! It generally reduces the disappointment rate.

    come on, i mean

    never get ur hopes up? <<<--- this is just sad ! what is life without hope, hope is what generates enthusiasm, enthusiasm is what drives us (humans) to accomplish our objective goals. hope is what motivates us, what moves us, so may be u need to re-think some of ur techniques by which u evaluate things. but generally keep ur hopes high girl.

    btw i sent u an email giving u my contacts this time then u can add me, coz for some reason last time the invitation didn't work

    Well, Anonymous, I used to live by those principles...Always in love with life, full of hope and eager to see what the next moment will bring. It did not turn out that great...However, I am sure I am bound to get back to that :)

    I for one am surprised that I still have hope after everything that has happened in the recent or distant past. I think it truly is the little engine that drives me, thoughts of better days... That or my stubbornness to have things my way. I'm sure you'll get back on the track, regarding hope&co. We all have our ups and downs.

    i guess the trick is having hope and enthusiasm for things... while maintaining the belief that if it does not work out, then it is probably for the best... and tomorrow is still another day. :)

    One nice comment deserves another =) *wink*

    Dont give up hope =). Your too cute for that. Not that hope and being cute have anything to do with each other, just thought it might make you feel better. =P

    Ryan, that is so true. If I ever really lost hope/my stubborness, I would be really lost. And yes, I will get back on track.

    Doshar, that is a wise way of putting it. Will take that into account.

    Fyurien, that's quite sweet. Thank you!

    one of the wisest buddhist proverbs i've ever read...

    "expect nothing, and life becomes a festival..."

    it changed my life, and i hope it helps...
