Sunny Disposition

I remember many years ago reading a poignant quote from Helen Keller that said: “

“Hope is a powerful feeling of optimism, a concept that assures you that things will improve and that there’s always an opportunity to smile and to transform your mood, your outlook and your life.”

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.” That sentiment really resonates, especially in these uncertain times where unpredictable precedent reigns supreme and the envelop of comprehension keeps getting pushed further and further. Optimism is a conscious strategy to make the future better — to believe things will turn out alright…and to take active steps toward a happy ending. None of us can predict the future, we can’t control what others decide to do or what surprises nature will throw our way. What we can control, however, is how we react to things, how we decide to not get discouraged and instead get motivated to take charge of our future. Optimism is a way of life that can wholly restore your faith in yourself and in humanity.
