People sometimes mistake a happy, upbeat, optimistic attitude with lack of common sense or someone who is naive. But I honestly believe it's a mistake to walk around dreading life, assuming it's all just a huge, long struggle and that we are meant to suffer on a daily basis. Life is what ever you make of it. There are countless stories of people who had nothing and created a life of abundance for themselves and helped others. They had to 'envision' it first before making it happen for themselves. I'm sure they didn't envision just a life of work and struggle- but rather, a stunning, and glorious, and happy existence for themselves in the future. What I've noticed in my own life, is that, just by changing my attitude to one of infinite possibilities and hopeful optimism, I've lead a happier, more satisfying life. Now who wouldn't want that?
