Wishful Wednesday: Optimism Blackhole

Red Ball

Fun fact: This picture is from an article that claims pessimists live longer than optimists.

My wish for this Wednesday is optimism. I wish I could be more optimistic.

I try to look on the bright side of things, but it usually isn’t much. I can’t see the bright side until it happens. Even with things that should be happy, like graduation, I’m more focused on the negative than the positive.

Sometimes, I feel it’s because I think and analyze things too much, but it might just be how my mind works. My mind is weird as it is, so it’s possible. I do enjoy imagining the possibilities of a particular situation, however, positive or negative.

Maybe someday, I’ll become more optimistic. Maybe I’ll always be pessimistic. I don’t know. But, hey, as long as I’m not on the verge of death, I’m good for the most part.
