Practicing optimism

I came across this quote today, author unknown. 


“Be happy, not because everything is good, but because you can see the good in everything.”



I am not a natural optimist.

Some days, optimism comes easily. Some days, not so much. On those more challenging days, I do not believe we are passive bystanders – Instead, we can practice positivity. We can excercise our optimism like we would a muscle. 

 

This quote was a much needed reminder for me to actively look for the good, the upside, the silver lining. 

Mind over matter.

Happy Tuesday!
