Optimism is hope in sneakers - it makes life more comfortable but doesnt have to be taken too seriously.
An Optimist looks on the bright side, walks on the sunny side, and gets up on the right side of the bed every day.
This may lead to the impression that optimists are slightly out of touch.
But they are the ones who strike the match that dispels all the dark.
Who else reminds us that a glass half empty is also a glass half full?
Who else looks for the pony wherever there's a pile of you-know-what?
Who else pictures life a little rosier than it is?
And often, because of them, it really is.
