Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s a cha-cha.
~robert brault (inspired by tristan prettyman’s recent instagram)
this might be one of the best definitions i have ever heard. now every time i face a set back on the heels of gaining some ground, i’m just going to chalk it up to perfecting my cha cha skills. (and we all know those could use some work).
