Renewed Hope and Wonder

Our idealism, our wonder, our huge dreams, our desire to leave a lasting impact in the world—so strong when we are young, slowly tarnished and forgotten as we grow older.

We shouldn't go back to blissful ignorance, but we do have to let go of the limiting and misguided beliefs we've picked up.

To be conscious of the chains we've tightened ourselves. Those little things that we let control us. Those things that don't matter, but we let occupy our minds. To release them and become unburdened, unhindered.

To still see the world without bias, without prejudice. To acknowledge its brokenness. But to relearn wonder and move forward with renewed hope and vigor. To envision a future, not of perfection, but of progress.

To finally bridge idealism with reality.
