I Used to Think

Now I Think

Mel explained that optimism is believing in your ability to handle what happens to you. Bad things will happen, but optimistic people know they have what it takes to get through tough situations.

A Good Day

Even if you didn’t do the best job at everything, you faced it, survived it, are still here and gained information about how to handle things better in the future. You are more optimistic than you think you are.
