It is Friday!!!! I would love to say we are on easy street over here, but the truth is that this day has been so bloody packed with chores, I’m ready to fall over. Today’s philosophy is all about optimism. I know that optimism gets a bad rap sometimes, but I still think it’s the way to live. I vastly prefer looking at harsh reality with some rose-coloured glasses, thank you very much. That isn’t because I refuse to face or accept reality, I just choose to also recognize opportunity within circumstances that might otherwise be negative. 🙂 It’s a “me” thing.
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” ~ Oscar Wilde
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~ Winston Churchill (He said it much better than I did in the above paragraph.)
“Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.” ~ William James
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement; nothing can be done without hope.” ~ Hellen Keller
And the biggie, as a closing quote:
“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Blessings to you all, and NEVER GIVE UP!
