Have you ever thought about why some people say “a day is partly sunny” and others, commenting on the same day, will say it is “partly cloudy”? It is the optimist who remembers the sunshine; the pessimist remembers the dark clouds... Or if a glass of water is half full, the optimist will think of it that way. But the pessimist will say, “it is half empty!” How you think and what you think can and does affect your actions. Lovable thoughts produce one result. Thoughts of hate produce the opposite result. It is true...“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Wouldn’t today be a good day to begin to think hopefully and look for opportunities in every difficulty instead of difficulty in every opportunity? Being an optimist is much more fun than being a pessimist. . . It is more pleasant to be around an optimist than a pessimist.. .Don’t you agree?.....
