The Optimist


This week’s post was inspired by an entertaining and enlightening definition of an ‘optimist’.

An Optimist

Is someone who figured out that taking a step forward and then a step backward is not a disaster, it’s a cha-cha!

Robert Brault

I’m curious, what did reading this bring to your awareness?

I was reminded of the natural ebb and flow of life and that we often ‘have to retrace our steps’ in order to achieve our goals.

Sometimes we are just too darn hard on ourselves.

When we are overly hard on ourselves this negatively affects those around us, and especially those closest to us.

For my part, if I had a dollar for every time I let my own negative self-judgments impact those I’m closest to, I’d have enough money to run for Congress and win!

What about you?

In our society there seems to be a strong tendency to ‘make light’ of our successes and accomplishments while at the same time ‘kicking ourselves’ for not having it ‘more together’.

As I’ve been saying for over 30 years.

‘It is what it is’.

So give yourself and those around you a break.

I invite you to reflect on your week and to come up with at least 3 things that you are proud of accomplishing.

Got em’?

Now, I invite you to pass this quote onto 3 colleagues, three friends, and, if you are in a committed romantic relationship, your sweetie and to ask them to share what they are most proud of accomplishing this week.

Why bother with all of this?

Because the world needs more optimism, light, and hope.

And it has to come from somewhere.

Why not from us?

See you next week!
