As I sit here and think of the many famous people who go through life with such a positive outlook on all things life, I can’t help but wonder…
How do they manage to look at the bright side, have hope, and encourage others to do the same?
How can they face so much criticism and scrutiny, yet live seemingly so happy?
They must have their daily struggles, their life can’t be without challenges…no one’s is.
They feel loneliness, suffer lose, and are hurt by injustice. They may be treated unkindly or face illnesses and deaths.
So, what keeps them smiling? What guides them to share their light? What is the secret to not letting things get you down or hold you there?
Some may say God, but someone close to him can still fall prey to pessimism.
Some may say Hope, but not all who have it are optimistic of what is to come.
Is it then, simply Faith? But, wait! Just because I think it will all be okay, doesn’t mean I won’t suffer through what is yet to be okay.
What says you, my resilient friend? Can it be a predisposed trait based on personality? A gene, perhaps?
I wish to know more. I want to find out. How do you keep your head up, so high, through it all?
Survey, data, research, analyze, and conclude…would I then have the key to succeed against my own doubts, fears, and pains?
