Wake Up, Pray, Slay….Optimism

Currently listening to Sia “Unstoppable” because honestly that’s how I feel right now.

Sneak peak into why am feeling like that is partly because I couldn’t get to make a post last weekend because apart from being swung in the hustle and bustle of owanmbe (this is what we call a wedding party in Nigeria), I couldn’t get someone to help snap my pictures. **struggles of a blogger**. But hey, here I am (thanks to a friend)… Guess what? I missed my blog FAM!

Wake up, Pray, Slay…. Trust me I wish I could actually do that, but this studying will not study itself(if you know, you know…lol.

FAM, in as much as I would have loved to actually just “Wake Up, Pray, Slay”, I couldn’t but thinking of these actually encouraged the “optimistic Gbemi” in me(not that am a pessimist).

Speaking of being optimistic, do you know that sometimes all we really need is one dose of optimism to kick pessimism in the butt? Yes, kick its butt… Why? It takes away your Joy and Inner Peace.

Optimism is a mental attitude —a happy belief that the outcome of some specific endeavor, or outcomes in general, will be good(wikipedia). Optimists always see and think positively even in bad situations. Pessimism is the opposite of what Optimism is. Pessimists think negatively and expect unpleasant results.

Optimism boils down to how we talk to ourselves and what we think, say, to ourselves. Basically optimism is the soul of Positive thinking.

The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.”
 Choose today to be optimistic and thus positive about every situation you find yourself in.

Cheers to being optimistic FAM, see you in my next post.
