When you wake up every day, you have two choices. You can either be positive or negative; an optimist or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist. It’s all a matter of perspective.
~Harvey Mackay, American businessman, author, and syndicated columnist
As we live, our understanding of the world broadens, and if we are lucky, so does our perspective. Circumstances happen, but our reaction to them is what matters most. In an instant, our lives can change. A dramatic shift or a life-altering event occurs that can shake even the most solid of foundations. Choices present themselves. If we decide to see ourselves as part of the great mystery, we can learn so much, but if we never allow the process to unfold, we will miss out on the beauty that is there for the taking. With the trained eye of the optimist, we don’t succumb to potential despair but rather use our challenges as an opportunity to break out of the small vision of the world into a new and greater one. This key that will inspire us to open the door to a better reality will encourage us to turn around in our cage and see the door to freedom wide open on the other side.
We all go through significant change. Perhaps we have lost a loved one or a job, suffered a health crisis, or experienced discord in a relationship. We still have two choices before us. If we choose to be an optimist, we offer the chance for any situation to be blessed by incredible miracles of understanding as our perspective of the world changes for the better.
Magical Key to Bliss: Choose optimism, and the results will be more favorable.
