Why you should be more optimistic

Neither the optimist nor the pessimist knows the future, but I’m sure you’ll agree, the optimist lives a much happier life in the moment than the pessimist. Go ahead, take a leap of faith, be optimistic! You’ve got everything to gain.

Think of life as a stream with a swift current running through it. With pessimism we plod against the force of the current, feeling the endless resistance of the water pushing against us. With optimism, we flow with the current, feeling the endless energy and buoyancy of the water. Why would anyone choose to go against the current? Why indeed!
