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.
