Topic: The Expectations of the Optimist


Segment 1  The Optimist Creed Found on Social Media…. 

Segment 2  MY CONCERNS

  • My love for Labels (she says tongue in cheek)
  • Setting ourselves up to feel successful or like a failure?
  • Who decided this is an optimist?
  • Sets us up to lie and fake it
  • Keeps us from true intimacy
  • Gives a false sense of superiority/inferiority

Segment 3
ANOTHER WAY OF LOOKING AT BEING AN OPTIMIST

I’ve been educating people about the power of attitude for over 3 decades… and sadly, these sort of declarations have the unintended consequence of making everyone feel like a failure if they cannot live up to this. And NO ONE can ever live up to this.

THIS is NOT the human condition NOR should it be the goal.

I’ll share with you why I say this.

When have you learned your most valuable lessons in life? Most likely through some level of pain and despair.

When have you grown the most mentally, emotionally, spiritually? When you have been challenged the greatest and fallen flat on your face and had to reach down deep to find your courage and fortitude to rise back up and try again.

When have you discovered the power of love, forgiveness, courage and more? When you have been down and out and someone, somewhere reached out to you with a loving hand and heart.

So the true OPTIMIST isn’t someone who is always happy, up, unfettered and noble – it’s someone who has real life experiences that challenge them to the core, they risk, the fight, they laugh, they cry, they sulk and all the while they KNOW this too shall pass and this is simply just part of the SPIRITUAL BEING HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE.

“WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS – SO ENJOY THE RAWNESS OF BEING HUMAN AND STOP TRYING TO BE SOMETHING WE ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE – PERFECT.”

Segment 4

“A Pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity

An Optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”  

Sir Winston Churchill

SETTING YOURSELF UP TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE – Warts and all!

  • Know your purpose – big and small
  • What are the real lessons for our human journey?
    • Compassion?
    • Forgiveness?
    • Acceptance?
    • Trust?
    • Surrender?
    • Perseverance?
    • Mindfulness?
    • Love?
      I have never put being PERFECT or INFALLIBLE on this list of what we are to learn here.

NEXT WEEK…  More about GENDER VS SEXUALITY.
