Recovering the Optimism


Hello, everyone!

Some times (sometimes more than we should) we tend to think that we are not doing much or that what we do for others is not enough but, clearly, we are actually contributing with something positive whenever we help other people and that makes us feel a lot better.

To contribute in order to build up a more solid and prosperous society definitely has favorable effects not only on the person who receives the help, but also on the person who gives it.

For being happy we need to be optimists. But, how can we be optimists during these times of crisis and uncertainties? Simply, by being solidary and by imitating the positive attitudes we see other people have against adversity.

On certain occasions, we see some people who have good jobs and are still unhappy, while there are others who are unemployed and are much happier. A crisis doesn’t have to affect the optimism within an individual.

Optimists look for the light at the end of the tunnel and believe me when I say that it is possible to start seeing the glass as half full, instead of half empty. Just let go of the assumption that the world is against you and learn to understand that the past doesn’t equal the future.

Also, remember that life is short and that you will get nowhere by being pessimist.


“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller.

Lots of Love,
