Every morning as you prepare for the day you face a simple choice: how are you going to accept the big and the small obstacles that you encounter during the day? Will you let these challenges become impossible obstacles or will you think like an optimist and turn them into opportunities?

Optimism is the tool you need, and the good news is that it can be developed. To engage your optimism, you need to mature the ability to pause for a moment when you encounter an obstacle. During that pause, begin to reframe what you’re seeing. Learn how to see an obstacle as an opportunity. Optimism isn’t a gift you’re born with—you develop it with practice and eventually you will become an authentic optimist, ready for any opportunity.

I haven’t felt my best lately.  I have bouts where the “perfect storm” hits and my mind and body suffer simultaneously; the last few days represent this phenomenon.  It’s times like this that I am thankful for Evelina.

My mind and spirit has been focused on gratefulness lately.  I don’t think this is a coincidence; I don’t think lots of things in life are happenstance.  Here is my list of things I am grateful for today:

  1. Evelina.  She loves me beyond understanding.
  2. Our family.  They support us when they don’t even realize.
  3. My health.  I know lots of people much worse than I.
  4. Freedom.
  5. The beauty of the world.
  6. My neurologist and modern medical care
  7. Having a beautiful roof over head.
  8. Clean drinking water
  9. Life

This gets me thinking about this weeks small change; “taking things for granted.”

Many times we can let things go unappreciated until it is too late and we no longer have it. Think for a moment about the people in your life, it may be easy to complain, gossip, and judge them, but what if you woke up to discover they are no longer on the planet? How about your job? How often do you curse the clients, the workload, and your co-workers? That’s easy to do, but when you get laid off…
