“To be or not to,” that is the question I ask myself when I think about how I am looking at the people or situations in my life.
I work at being optimistic, rather than pessimistic. To some that might look like I’m in denial, but I don’t see it that way. I feel like it gives me a wider scope to look through. Seeing the bigger picture allows me to make an informed, and thoughtful decisions. Being pessimistic limits our outlook on life, and confines us to stay within its walls. They are at opposite ends like light, and darkness. The one we put our energy into will determine the kind of life we create for ourselves.
An optimist is one who can taste the sour bitterness of a lemon, and see its possibilities. All it takes is a bit of sweetness and kindness to turn lemons into lemonade.
Optimism gives me the ability to see hope where others see none. It allows me to believe in those whom others have given up on.
I love having the understanding that the choice is mine.
I can choose this or that,
“to be or not to be.”
It’s not up to anyone one else but me.
Be it optimism or pessimism the one thing I know;
the outcome determines which way my life flows.
