Optimism can change any situation, and will keep you grounded in your faith. Fortunately, your attitude is something you can control, so stay positive and your faith will grow.
This quote from Lucille Ball is a great reminder.
“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.” ~Lucille Ball
What is Optimism?
From Wikipedia: Optimism is a mental attitude — a happy belief that the outcome of some specific endeavor, or outcomes in general, will be good. A common idiom used to illustrate optimism versus pessimism is a glass with water at the halfway point, where the optimist is said to see the glass as half full and the pessimist sees the glass as half empty.
