“The most courageous decision that you can make each day is to be in a good mood.” — Voltaire
This quote is one that I now completely get. I now try to live an optimistic, positive life without complaining, without comparing myself with others and without negativity.
But I used to think optimists are just too blind to see how bad reality really is. Now I get the idea of optimism. It’s about designing our own life. Every second I spend on being negative I tell my brain that my life sucks. With every second spent in a positive, optimistic mood I tell my brain that my life is great. There have been barely any days I would call “bad days” since I actively decided to live a positive life.
Look around you, what is it that you’re happy about? Life is about these small things. Design them, see them.
I hope you have a fantastic day.
PS: Next Friday I’ll be writing about designing a perfect next year instead of having New Year’s resolutions. Any questions?
