Optimism is the ability to see the positive in every situation, with the unwavering belief that everything will work out for the best.
Though I am not an optimist by nature, over the years I’ve learned how much power there is in being optimistic. In complex or difficult situations, being optimistic can be a person’s only source of hope that keeps them going.
I am privileged to be surrounded by people who see the world positively, and I was surprised to find how their optimism has had a positive effect on me.
In honor of Israel’s 75th Independence Day, I want to encourage us all to be more optimistic – to listen, to be open to different viewpoints, and to choose to see the silver lining even in tough times.
