At one point in life, I was a pessimist. Everything was bad and I didn’t think it would get better. However, I have had a change in perspective. It was a necessary change. Who wants to be grumpy and negative all of the time? Where is the fun and joy? It’s not in negativity or pessimism.
I do have a grasp on reality. So I understand that bad things happen. I broke my ankle and had my SUV stolen in the same week. It was not a great week but I didn’t feel unhappy. I had faith that things would work out. A few days later, my SUV was found. After this minor set-back, I was back on my feet. Did you see what I did there. 😉 I have been able to find humor in bad situations. Humor has saved me from having to wear grumpy pants. They are pretty cute sweatpants.
