“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.
