Round two of my insightful deep rambling. I have a terrible case of ringing in the ears so this will be interesting; I can’t focus to save my life right now.
Today’s Topic: Optimism
Firstly, if any of my close friends reads this, they know I am anything but the poster-girl for optimism. But honestly, I really think the power of optimism is one of the greatest things in the world. Even when you hit your lowest low and feel like there’s no possible way things can get better, hope can make a world of difference. Telling yourself things will be okay, even when your life is seemingly in shambles, is exactly the thing that will make it okay.
However, at the same time, your optimism must come from within yourself, you cannot rely on others to make you feel better at all times. If you do, you will only push them away. At the same time, do not completely cut yourself off from the people who care, because that also pushes them away.
It can be hard to be optimistic, but that’s what we as people need to do to keep our hopes and dreams alive. No matter how impossible something might seem, it can happen. You just have to try. Even if Master Yoda did say once, “do or do not, there is no try.” SO, go out and DO what will make you happy. Do not wait for it to happen, and if your idea of happiness doesn’t pan out- find a new source of happiness.
Whatever you do, have faith in yourself and your own optimism. Do not always try to rely on others. Self sufficiency is a key to self confidence, which can also be a key to happiness.
You’ve got this.
