Grateful for 'O'ptimism

Sunday, November 15, 2009

the glass is half full

O is for optimism

I believe that life is good. Period. There are bumps and hurdles but I truly see things as half full. There is always a silver lining. Sometimes it's buried and finding it can be a challenge, but it is always there.

I am grateful for the gumption of optimism; that it allows for aiming towards a plentiful path rather than looking back and wallowing. Better to try and learn - even if it means having to try again - then to never have tried at all.

You?

I am grateful for Others' Optimism! I tend to be an Eyore in life & appreciate the optimism of people like you Sarah & my hubby Chad. Pulls me off the ledge & gives me perspective. Thank you!
