I recently read a news article that offered two perspectives of the same story. One was a more pessimistic and negative view of the subject and the other was optimistic, which highlighted the positive aspect.
It reminded me that whatever situation we are in there are always multiple ways of looking at it.
In his book, “Learned Optimism”, Martin Seligman suggests that this is a practice that we can cultivate. Being present and in the moment helps us to shift our focus and alter our perspective. There is indeed much to be optimistic about.
What are you optimistic about?
