What’s The Power of Optimism?
The other day it was raining. The skies were gray and the sun, with its diffused light, seemed a memory. But as I left the house I still grabbed my sunglasses…
Later I realized my sunglasses were still on my head. I shrugged and smiled. I’m just being optimistic, I thought. And that’s true. Even though the weathermen said it would rain all day, I expected sunshine before the day was through.
And you know what?
I got it!
In the afternoon the sun poked its face through the clouds and bathed the countryside in golden light. Breathtaking!
Sometimes it’s easy to have gray in our lives and expect it to stay. We see the clouds and think, “Oh crap! Another cloudy day.”
But when you train yourself to see the gray instead of expecting sunshine, you’re going to get more gray.
I’m going to let you in on a secret.
There is always some sunshine in everything.
There is always something good or beneficial in every situation. Sometimes it’s right where you can see it. And sometimes you have to look for it.
But it is always there.
When you train yourself to look for sunshine, you’ll have happier days and a happier life.
You’ve just got to have the power of optimism on your side. 😉
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
