Chapter 5, Page 7, Book 20

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement; nothing can be done without hope.

Helen Keller

May 7th-think positive

Optimism is the foundation of courage.


Positive thinking can lead to positive change in your life.  Developing on optimistic outlook can be good for both our physical and mental health.  Optimism is one of the keys to getting started on striving for a better life.  If you do not have faith in a greater future for yourself you will not work toward it, and will just continue to do the same old things day after day. We have to keep moving forward.

We must believe better things are going to come into our life. It’s a beautiful feeling when nothing is certain in life, that we are in control.  There is beauty in the unknown, the fact that the best days of our life is yet to come , anything is possible  and there are far better things ahead.  It takes faith to believe in what we cannot see. Faith gives us hope for the days ahead.  Stay positive and keep believing.  The best is yet to come.

It’s always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see.

Winston Churchill

Always good to think positive. It makes for better days than wallowing in self pity. I do appreciate your positive messages Ma!

My big reading project for this time is a 1,000 page bio of Winston Churchill. I'm inspired by everything he did to lead the British people in the very darkest days of the war.

I think I'm basically an optimistic person … yet, every now and then I find myself in a (mental) valley. Sometimes it helps to put on an upbeat piece of music. Right now I'm thinking of a childhood favorite, "High Hopes" ….. and smiling at the image of that little old ant trying to move the rubber tree plant.


optimism is the way to embrace hope. i agree with you about being positive when you face everyday. one day at a time.
