It’s Friday …..again. I wish I could say everything is alright in the world; it isn’t. But, in spite of all that’s wrong, and nothing ever improving, one thing can change, and that’s choices. We can choose to look at things as just a stepping stone to something much better. Our attitude is everything! And one of those attitudes is being optimistic. For some of us the future is very bright. Bask in the thought of knowing that and it will make what you’re going through right now seem small in comparison. Enjoy this, kind of funny optimistic story. Have a great weekend, and don’t worry…it’s all going to work out; or so I’ve heard…LOL Much love to you all in these days. “…ofthestory
It pays to Be Optimistic….Doesn’t it?
There is a story of identical twins. One was a hope-filled optimist. “Everything is coming up roses!” he would say. The other twin was a sad and hopeless pessimist. He thought that Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law, was an optimist. The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist.
He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins” personalities. “On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure.” The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.
When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining, “I don’t like the color of this computer . . I’ll bet this calculator will break . . . I don’t like the game . . . I know someone who’s got a bigger toy car than this . . .”
Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air. He was giggling. “You can’t fool me! Where there’s this much manure, there’s gotta be a pony!”
Depends on how you see things…but it really does pay to be optimistic. Playing the safety: Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
