‘Twixt the optimist and the pessimist the difference is the droll:
The optimist sees the doughnut but the pessimist see the hole.
~ McLandburgh Wilson
While researching quotes, I stumbled upon this one and it hit me right between the eyes. The echo of this author and poet silences a world of chatter.
It’s a funny thing, the optimist and the pessimist. One believes the best will happen where the other believes the worst; but there are advantages and disadvantages to both perspectives. But the truth is, realism is what really matters.
In my own life and even in my writings, I find myself as being the optimist. For every negative there is a positive. But I also know that life just sucks sometimes and excepting it makes it real enough for me to adjust my perspective to understand it.
Below is a list, which is not strictly limited to these alone, of some of my do’s and dont’s for a more positive life. I have to admit, I am still working on these and hoping to see life through blessings rather than disappointments.
There is one tip on this list that I really struggle with. Can anyone guess which one it is? In the meantime, please share with me your tips and suggestions for finding the diamond in the rough. This inquiring mind wants to know! 🙂
