On today’s Wordpress home page there is a simple poll. The question reads:
“Are you optimistic for 2010?”
The 24-hr. vote shows that the answer “Yes” garnered 84%. Wow! It is nice to know that despite a world filled with troubles, we can still find a majority filled with optimism.
This knowledge makes me feel more cheerful and more optimistic, seeing that vote of confidence!
After consulting two online-dictionaries for the word “Optimism“, here are a couple of definitions I enjoyed:
1. “Having a state of positive beliefs”
2. “The belief that the universe is improving and that good will ultimately triumph over evil.”
Take a minute to read some other words in the family of optimism:
anticipation, assurance, brightness, buoyancy, calmness, certainty, cheer, confidence, easiness, elation, enthusiasm, exhileration, expectation, good cheer, happiness, idealism, positivism, sureness, trust…
And one my personal favorites … Hope!
It is my hope that reading those words filled you up with as much positive energy as it did for me! Today, I join with you in sharing New Optimism for our New Year!
The Power of HOPE
Yay! I like 84%. Welcome 2010!
