When you’re in elementary school, you’re always looking forward to summer, when you can play freely and have fun with friends. Later on, in high school and college, you’re still looking forward to summer, when you can relax after a long year of hard work and stress. No matter what your summer is really like, you still look forward to it because of the promise of new, happy memories after a long time devoid of memories that don’t involve stress in some way, because even if you’re dissatisfied with some parts of summers, you always have fun and make new memories through friendship and experiences. It’s important to keep looking forward to those memories because they will always come, no matter what you may think of how hopeless you feel. In that way, summer brings hope with it–the hope of new memories, new beginnings, and happiness. Hold on to that hope and keep making these new memories to renew that hope because it can get you through the toughest of times.
