Dont Get Your Hopes Up Essay

596 words - 2 pages

Solgot 1Britni SolgotJoan WegnerENG 111-288 October 2014Don't Get Your Hopes UpI have been told all my life "Don't get your hopes up."

Every time I'm "stuck," and I find myself hoping that I will get out somehow, hope becomes that doorway to finding my way in to the life I want.Caring about my hopes with every part of me drives me to create them. Instead of negating big dreams, I embraced them. Hope...
