"Real optimism is aware of problems but recognizes solutions;
knows about difficulties but believes they can be overcome;
sees the negatives, but accentuates the positives;
is exposed to the worst but expects the best;
has reason to complain, but chooses to smile."
~ William Arthur Ward

in the book "Inspiration: 365 Days a Year" by Zig Ziglar

So true

What i got from this quote was when i am at a point and i feel like i am about to complain about something, i will try to stop myself and let it go. I can be very complainy at times definitely not one of my better traits 🇸🇭

I also loved how you mentioned you smiled too, reading this made me smile :lovesigh:

Many Blessings
