Monday, musings

“Optimism is an elected attitude,
a form of emotional courage.”
Julia Cameron

Optimism is something we choose in spite of the way things are…or seem to be. The world is often a scary place. It is big and filled with lots of different people that are often hard to understand and get along with a lot of the time. People tend to talk about the troubles and woes of life rather than the happiness and rewards.

It is best to not let circumstances determine how we think. It isn’t easy to face challenges, some of which can be overwhelming if we allow our fear to be bigger than the challenges. Optimism requires some work. It doesn’t just happen. Really, it is easier to just give up and be pessimistic. What a depressing thought!

Anyone can survive daily life,
but it is a person of courage who thrives.

  1. First off, I love Julia Cameron. The Right To Write stays right by my bed at all times. I find her very inspiring. Optimism is a true art to hone, to look at your glass half full, not half empty. To accept what is helps, though I have slips in that area. The acronym for SLIP…SERENITY LOST ITS PRIORITY.
    You’re write simply and beautifully Patricia, always enhancing my thoughts.

  2. I chose to be positive and thankful. I wasn’t always that way, but I learned that life is far better being positive and thankful.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Patricia. ♥
