O - Optimism

Posted by Claudia Moser on 12:51 PM in , ,

Till date I have read lots of articles which demonstrate that people who are viewing life with optimism live longer and enjoy life fully. Some facts which helped me:

1. Have positive thoughts about yourself and others. The glass is always full even if it has 50% water, the rest is air :)
Picture frim here

2. Stop comparing yourself. Every individual has unique and has special talents that should be appreciated. I did learn that my qualities brought me lots of joy and I strive to develop them further.

3. In every difficult moment, face the challenge by focusing on achieving a positive outcome, rather than anticipating defeat. Plus you never know where you end.

4. Exercise, eat healthy diet, and good sleeping habits and hygiene. Well I follow almost all of them!

5. Challenge your mind every day by learning something new, plus read read read, it helps!



Loved the illustration. No empties, ever. :-)

Comparison is a funny thing. It all depends on who you compare yourself to. I often have to remind my daughter that sleeping in her own bed with clean sheets means she's richer than a huge percentage of the world's children. Yes, there's always someone who has it better, but there are always many more who have it worse.

I like the cleverness of the glass one

Good advice, Claudia. Someone once told me that I always seemed to look at the positive side of things, rather than the negative, which was quite a compliment!

Never underestimate the power of positive thinking - it works!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
