I’m writing you today to talk to you about hope.
First of all, my name is Firas Mghames & I’m a hopaholic.
You should be surprised if I weren’t!
How can I not be, as I was born in Zouk Mosbeh, Kesrwan in 1985 during the Lebanese civil war & lived there my whole life.
My parents brought me to this world hoping for the best.
I was raised & trained to deal with hope and call for it every day. “Inshallah” (hopefully) or “Inshallah kheir” (hopefully for the best) we say.
Sometimes I don’t get what I hope for, but that only happens when I’m lazy to do something about it.
But most of the time, I get what I hope for.
Hope got the best out of me. It always pushed me to do more & eventually be more.
Hope gave me nothing & everything at the same time.
What I found out later with time, is that you hope for the best but you do all the work.
Hope doesn’t respond back when you only ask for it. Hope doesn’t get you anywhere if you don’t work hard for it.
So hope didn’t give me anything but one lesson; not to count on it.
So let’s keep hoping for the best; hopefully things will stay on the right track for me.
