POSITIVE THINKING - OPTIMISM - SEEING POSSIBILITY
“Once you choose hope, anything is possible.” - Christopher Reeve
“Worry is just a misuse of a good imagination.” - Dan Zadrea
Hope. n. the feeling that accompanies a positive thought about the future.
A member of the L Force sees the glass as half full. To be an optimist is to focus on an act in favor of positive incomes, even while acknowledging the existence of challenges. It has been said that if you change your thoughts, you change your world. Whether something is good or bad, positive or negative - any judgements or opinions you make are based on the context with which the situation is framed. Being an optimist (thinking positive thoughts and choosing hope) has some great advantages:
1 - It feels better to focus on the optimistic interpretation of information, and
2 - By focusing on a positive outcome, we increase the likelihood of it occurring.
To hope for something is to root for it, to support it, to regard it Lovingly.
