    I Just Love This Quote.

    I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. Rabindranath Tagore

    Being Optimistic

    seems to make life easier for me.  I have been through a lot of stuff.  There were times when I wanted to just give up, but I didn't.  We all have challenges that are thrown at us.  It's how you deal with them that matters.  If you're optimistic it's...

    Try Being the Key Word

    Being optimistic can be hard.  Life gets in the way sometimes.  But, if you tell yourself it will get better, it just might happen.  That is what I believe anyway.  Words have power.

    It's like a really hard game

    when all the choices that you've got is bad and you must aim to make a good one out of it without complaining.

    Although there are days

    where I'm not optimistic at all and I say/think/feel negative things I always try my best to stay optimistic (most days). I've had family members disown me, been beaten, insulted, looked down upon because of my race, and have lost loved ones to cancer or deportation and some who...

    I Used to Be Extremely Optimistic

    It came naturally to me - I had a great childhood, an amazing college experience and I started out well early in my career.  As I've gotten a little older - I've let the world start to drag me down.  I'm still faithfully optimistic - but some doubt has entered.  It...

    Something good comes out of everything bad.

    You just need to make it happen. If you can’t find the silver lining, draw it yourself.

    It gets better. It starts getting better the

    moment you stop dwelling on the negatives and realize there's hope and it keeps getting better when you act on that hope.

    Optimism is a pretty hard thing to have

    sometimes, but you have to have it. Optimism is what keeps you going. Optimism is what lets this world revolve around the sun and keep us living. I would not be here without optimism.

    There's someone somewhere

    who feels the same way, someone who'd understand, someone who’d care, someone who's closer than you think, someone you're bound to run into, someone you might already know, someone you wouldn't expect.
