Chapter 5, Page 7, Book 21

Being optimistic is like a muscle that gets stronger with use.  Makes it easier when the tough times arrive.  You have to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel.

Robin Williams

May 7th - Think positive 

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievements .  Nothing can be done without hope or confidence.

Helen Keller

Optimism is a mental attitude characterized by hope and confidence in success and a positive future.
Optmists are those who expect good things to happen, whereas pessimists instead produce unfavorable outcomes.  Optimistic attitudes give us better coping skills, lowers stress levels and higher persistence when if coms to pursuing goals.

Optimist tend to view hardships as learning experiences or temporary setbacks. Even the most miserable day holds the promise for them that tommorw  probably better.

If you always see the bright side of things, you may feel that you experience more positive events in your life than others, you will find yourself less stressed and enjoy greater health benefits.

So always look for the silver lining.  And try to find the sunny side of life.

How curious, that Robin Williams quote. Sad, too.
I think my own optimism began to germinate when I found myself around pessimists and realized I didn't want to be like that!

What Myra said about the Williams quote.
I remember a very sad person saying, Oh I am definitely positive. I am sure if something can go wrong it will!
