Being optimistic is one of the hardest things to do, especially when your failure is staring you in the face.
Optimism is a skill that we learn being raised in the country and it’s something that everyone should work on. It’s not easy to look for something to be thankful for, let alone that could lead to something better when it seems like your life is falling apart. I know how hard it is to see your crops turning yellow and brown when your family is depending on you for food, or to have the bill collectors calling 24/7 while you’re trying to figure out where your next meal is coming from.
I’ve been there, but I always look for some kind of good I can take away from a situation. A lesson to be learned, someone you meet that you end up being friends with, or sometimes the only thing good to come out of a situation is a closer relationship with God.
Just because things aren’t going your way now, doesn’t mean that there isn’t a silver lining in even the darkest of clouds.
