Optimism Or Not?

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I'm not normally an optimistic person. The way I usually function is to see the glass half empty.

I'm slowly learning that when I am optimistic

about life in general, I feel better. This enables me to accomplish more things during the day with positive outcomes.

It doesn't matter if it's weight related or emotions related. The results are better!

So for me it all boils down to how I want to think about things.

If I choose to be optimistic, I will be. If I choose not to be optimistic, I won't be. Today I choose to be optimistic.

I want all good things in my life. I want to be happy, carefree and serene.

What do you choose?

    Glass 1/2 full is a better bet.

    Trying to catch up with some of my friends' blogs, and must have missed this one. Very nice blog and very true! I have also been learning to be more optimistic and it is making a HUGE difference in my life. I love the illustrations you used...I will see them in my mind as a reminder to keep my attitude positive!
