LAMENTED AT; 11:56 am
Just at the flick of an eye, my blog has become very emotionally charged; I realised.
It's not that I've lost my optimism. In fact, I think I've never been so realistically optimistic. Because I think, the true test of optimism is seeing the best in situations no matter how hopeless one may be; and being able to genuinely smile even though things don't turn out.
It is opening your eyes to a different perspective and one that surpasses everyone's primary emotions, including your own. it is seeing the bigger picture and picturing the best outcome- that not all seemingly hopeless situations have to turn out that way. It is a mindset that requires detachment and taking the high road. Last of all, it is where you have to partially forget how you feel for a moment and think of how the situation may benefit another, more than yourself.
The road to optimism is giving people the benefit of the doubt and at the same time being prepared to be proven wrong. It is also being able to find that grace in you to forgive that person who has proven you wrong should he prove you wrong, and forgiveness meaning not harboring any ill feelings after things are over. The road to optimism is truly a WWJD (what would Jesus do) situation. And I do believe it is unachievable without looking for God for grace in the first place.
Will you get taken for granted for being so accommodating? Are people likely to take advantage of you? Is your significant other half going to find you too easy?Sadly yes.
No, I am not implying anything, but just give it a thought. Us being humans, we don't know what we truly have until it walks out of our lives.
So before you take advantage or under appreciate someone in your life, stop and think. what would you do if they walked out of yours having given it their best, and had enough.
