We all know pessimists in our lives, so what distinguishes and optimist from a pessimist? Perhaps optimists have an ability to see the positive in the learning experience in all of life's situations and circumstances? Perhaps it is their undying ability to remain strong, conscious and steady amidst stress? Or perhaps it is their willingness to practice how they respond to unforeseen situations and they are just more seasoned at approaching stressors with optimism because they practice?
This little journal is that very practice -- a daily practice that turns life's observations and stresses into positive learning.
This 30 day practice will change how you begin and end each day and promises to bring optimism back into your life.
