i’ve always fashioned myself somewhat of, what i like to call an optimistic realist. i will always see the glass as half full, not half empty, but i’m not completely naive to the fact that sometimes bad things happen and that’s just kind of a part of life.
but lately, i can’t help but think i’ve traveled into the territory of “worst case scenario.” as if a the skepticism thief has come in and robbed me of my once rosey outlook. granted, a few recent events may or may not justified said skepticism, but i don’t want to use that as an excuse. because the truth is, there really is a silver lining in every situation. it might not appear immediately, but if you wait long enough, it’ll form. hope is always appropriate. and finding the good amidst the bad can be easy if we only stop and change our perspective.
