Optimism – thoughts


a good morning


According to Wikipedia optimism is :

The word is originally derived from the Latin optimum, meaning “best.” Being optimistic, in the typical sense of the word, ultimately means one expects the best possible outcome from any given situation.


Optimism is a learned habit, and it is positively contagious. Surround yourself with people who could infect you with positivity.
In turn pass your new good mood on to a friend or stranger in words and deed – let somebody have that parking space, let that person with only a few items cut in front of you at the market.
The simple act of doing something nice for others is actually a good pick-me-up all by itself.


Thank you Gallivanta for letting me use one of your beautiful photos

Optimism inspires, energizes, and brings out our best. It points the mind toward possibilities and helps us think creatively past problems.


“The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser – in case you thought optimism was dead.”
― Robert Brault

And let us not forget the famous glass of water … half full or half empy?


How do you see your glass of water?

Optimism is

positive thinking,

positive attitude,

positive living!

Look optimistic towards the new day and

you will be surprised that miracles do happen!
