An optimistic attitude

By nature, we all wanted to do something different in life. Every morning we wish the day to be good, occasionally we get thoughts that we should be a change agent and bring about a change in other’s life, bring liveliness in those gloomy moments and bring a smile in other’s face and touch the hearts of many.




Sometimes life just grants our wishes and makes us happy to the core. But there are other days where things just don’t get into the way we want. It creates a hyper tension moment or a mini tsunami sort of shakes inside the mind which irritates and disturbs the normal being.


These are quite typical in life. Like how you need both white and black keys in piano to create a wonderful music, you need “happy” and “not-so-happy” days to weave wonderful moments of life. You cannot truly cherish the happiness if you don’t know what challenges and sadness are!

In such hard times, don’t get panic or send those frightening signals to people around you. Stay optimistic and look for ways to recover to normalcy. Unfortunately our world is surrounded by lot of negative thoughts, displeasing events and stress. The important factor is not letting yourself dictated by such events.

It doesn’t matter what’s happening around you. If you can develop an optimistic attitude, you can take on any challenge and win the situation. Make an effort to replace any negative and pessimistic thoughts with optimistic ones. Optimism has cured cancer in the world. After all, our day-to-day silly problems can definitely be rectified by being optimistic.

If you feel low and want to recharge your optimism, go see the nature and get it for free. The morning sun rays are there to embrace you; the soothing breeze is waiting to kiss you; the clouds are looking to dance with you; the thunder lightning wants to take a snap of you and the stars keep winking at you. Look at those sea waves; every time when they fall, they never fail to rise again. Be inspired and stay optimistic!

Could not agree more Anand! The best things in life are free but we need to appreciate them! Also,what is a life without challenges! When the going gets tough the tough get going...

Staying optimistic helps you achieve wonders. It infuses energy and happiness to perform. Loved the line where you used the metaphor of piano keys. However, at times it's so difficult to stay positive.

On a larger perspective and with time we understand things will happen they way they are destined. It's only our attitude which changes the course to our destination. So, as you said, saying optimistic is the best way.

Great post to infuse more life...

The last paragraph is very poetic dripping with beautiful imagery! I challenge you to write a poem now *big smiles* and I also challenge every pessimistic human being on this earth to read this optimistic post!

Fantastic writing!

Hi Anand,

I absolutely agree on this part -

"These are quite typical in life. Like how you need both white and black keys in piano to create a wonderful music, you need “happy” and “not-so-happy” days to weave wonderful moments of life. You cannot truly cherish the happiness if you don’t know what challenges and sadness are!"

Now, thinking on the same lines, for the sake of having a discussion, don't you think, that optimists and pessimists, the existence of both are necessary in this world. One can not live without the other. The definition of optimism exists because there is pessimism in the world. I am not trying to support one school of thought over another. I am an optimist to the core, but, may be some of us were designed to be pessimist as well...Every thought serves a purpose..may be we do not know the purpose...but still.. :)

like the thought of the waves - every time they fall they rise - so simple but so much meaning
will cling onto this gem for a while longer :)

"Like how you need both white and black keys in piano to create a wonderful music, you need “happy” and “not-so-happy” days to weave wonderful moments of life."....wow what a way of expressing and relating it! That was my favourite!

Your post echoed the lines of Coleridge!"I may not hope from outward forms to win
The passion and the life, whose fountains are within.". The ultimate source of happiness is to be found within!
And the last para is so refreshing! Regards Anand! Keep going:)Enjoyed the optimism here:)

Ashwini said...

It is vital to stay optimistic, come what may. That in itself would help eradicate negative thoughts from us. And yes, we realize the value of the sun only when it is freezing cold, so we need to learnt o adjust with extreme happiness and extreme sadness as well. I loved the way you wrote about the morning rays, I feel the sun rays kind of cleanses us and prepares us for a better day. Wonderfully written :-)

Anand said...

@Rahul Bhatia: Thank you very much Rahul-ji. Yes, life will be bland without challenges. :)

Anand said...

@Rahul Bhatia: Thank you very much Rahul-ji. Yes, life will be bland without challenges. :)

Anand said...

@Saru Singhal: Thanks for the comment Saru.. Sometimes staying positive can be an easy cake walk. When things dont turn up the way you want, just think everything is gonna be alright. It will happen automatically :)

Anand said...

@ashok: Thank you Ashok :)

Anand said...

@A S: Thanks a ton and welcome here :)

Anand said...

@Someone is Special: Thanks a ton pal :)

Anand said...

@Lady*♥*Fiona:Thanks a million Fiona... Your comment will always uplift me to write more!

And you really want me to write a poem? *wink* That's like entering a different territory which doesn't belong to me! But someday I will try... Thank you soooooo much again :)

Anand said...

@Kunal: An interesting take buddy. Completely loved your view. We can take it this way - pessimists exist to give an opportunity for optimists to convert them! What say?

Thanks a lot for stopping by :)

Anand said...
