Part One of the "Bright Side" Trilogy.
"A thought comes and a thought goes, a fleeting wonderful impossibility. But then, as that wonderful impossibility fades, reason concedes that nothing is impossible, and out of that seed sprouts hope. And out of hope, every wonderful impossibility becomes a most magnificent reality. With though, reason, and hope, there is no need for doubt, fear, and despair. Hold onto hope and fuel a beautiful future."
Testimony presents how the dangers of chasing after something you desire, tinged with false optimism, can impact everything else you've worked for in your life.
