The first station in the journey of optimism is excitement,
its consequence is thrill,
thrill gives rise to euphoria,
euphoria causes anxiety,
anxiety arouses fear,
out of fear grows panic,
from panic arises the tendency to surrender.
At the mid station, hope steps in, to overcome depression.
comes relief, to steer the path of optimism.
Optimism grows out of hope,
euphoria kills it,
and the sine curve continues….
