“For myself I am an optimist – it does not seem to be much use to be anything else.”
― Winston S. Churchill #MondayMorningWakeUpCall
Came across this post from a blog I follow that resonates what Churchill says. I can’t say it any better so sharing it verbatim
Pascal’s Wager is a famous argument using logic to prove one should have a belief in God. Here is my somewhat similar, not quite as scientific, argument in favor of optimism:
- You can either be pessimistic while you do things, which will make you more likely to see unhappiness, which will make you unhappier.
- Or you can be optimistic while you do things, which will make you more likely to see happiness, which will make you happier.
It seems like a pretty clear choice to me…

My 2.5 bits: In case you’re sometimes having trouble seeing the rainbow amidst the rain, you could try reaching out to my good friends Jack & Daniel who have quite often helped brighten up many a gloomy day. Even NY Times best-selling author Darynda Jones vouches for them saying “I like to see the glass as half full, hopefully of jack daniels.”
