“A stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping stone to the optimist.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Melissa’s Words of Wisdom

As you begin a new year, are you going into this year as a pessimist or an optimist?  Do you see the year ahead as full of roadblocks or full of opportunities to go down a new path and grow forward?  Do you back away from them or step toward them?  It’s all in your perception of the path before you; stumbling blocks or stepping stones?  Sometimes it can be challenging to alter your perception and see the good and the opportunity in whatever the situation is before you.  The key is that you practice doing this all the time, no matter how big or small the challenge is!  Be an optimist and find the opportunity! The more you do, the more natural it will be for you to always look for the good, the opportunity, the stepping stone and ultimately find the solution!  Remember, nothing happens until you decide to take action!  Leave a comment below about how you keep an optimistic attitude.  Happy Optimism in 2013!
