Realise that hope is a luxury.

Is it not the biggest luxury to be able to see? Today I saw a woman with a blind dog and a pram. She was a blind woman, with a baby, crossing the road. I said out loud "that's beautiful", but it's beyond beautiful. She captured the absolute epitome of wonderful. It's such a luxury in itself to hope for some things. We sit here complaining, or perhaps not even complaining, perhaps you sit there and anticipate seeing Paris or Rome. We're so lucky to hope for those things. Hope is a luxury. All we have to do is wait, and make choices. Some people don't have the option to hope and don't have any choice.
