I think that I’m by nature a pessimist, but rationally I choose to be an optimist. I work very hard at it.
Life looks beautiful when viewed thru the prism of optimism. My favorite “ism” is optimism. Will your struggles be problems or or will they be adventures? It’s your call.
Optimism doesn’t just wait for a better future. It works to improve today. Optimists optimize their options.
Optimists will persist until they see hope break through the mist of despair. It’s easy to be discouraged. I prefer to struggle for hope by persistently pursuing the challenging call to optimism.
Optimists see opposition as an opportunity to use their positive outlook to overcome obstacles. Hope (the expectation that a desire will be fulfilled) + optimism (confidence about the future) = hopetimism.
Optimists don’t insult people. They find the good in people and inspire them to live it out.
Optimism gives you the fortitude to stay hopeful when things look bad, and to get up and keep going after a fall. When your comfort zone cracks up and leads you to a happy future, you realize that it wasn’t what it was cracked up to be.
