Optimism is a revolutionary and spiritual choice

I am an optimist, happily so. I’ve been one my whole life, and expect to continue.

I feel fortunate and grateful that I tend to look on the sunny side, even when there’s nothing but clouds. If the glass looks empty, I have no doubt it’ll fill up again. This attitude has brought me many blessings and happy things, as well as more reasons to be optimistic.

Creativity is a natural part of your existence. Every choice you make is a creative act.
