10 Reasons for Optimism Today – Day 207 of 365 Days to a Better You

Hello, my friends. When you think about it, there’s always reasons close by for optimism.

  1. You woke up this morning. You can’t start better than that.
  2. You have freedom of choice. Your life is built of your choices. You are free to change yours, if you want a change in your life.
  3. People facing your exact challenges or worse have succeeded and thrived anyway.
  4. You’re a day wiser than you were yesterday.
  5. When you really stop and look, there are tiny miracles going on everywhere around you. Make it a point to notice.
  6. There is inspiration for the life you want everywhere. Drink it in.
  7. Love. Despite all the ugliness in the world, love still wins.
  8. You’re you and that’s damn sure more than enough.
  9. Forgiving and receiving forgiveness are still options.
  10. You have a big dream. You have all you need within you to achieve it. You have help from the universe coming from all directions.

Don’t allow the negatives and naysayers to steal your optimism. Don’t allow setbacks to steal your dreams. Don’t allow the end of one dream to be the end of dreaming. You’re made for BIG things. Keep your focus on the good and the good will multiply.

You’re one in a trillion. I’m glad to know you!

I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  1. I loved that list and have quite a few more to add. Thank you for following me Ray, my name’s Kimberly (or Kimba). I think I’m going to adore your site. I go through shifts of being on for days and days, sometimes weeks, and then going M.I.A. for days, weeks or months, but I always return. I really love (genuine love) what you’re putting out there, including your blog’s name. I have 69+ affirmations posted to my bathroom mirror in the shape of a tree hehe. However, that began near 4 years ago and these days I find that I read them less and live them more.

    In any event, again, thank you for the follow, I hope you enjoy my unique way of sharing – the 3 part design I use to express what I’m sharing, which can’t really be felt or seen by any other means than a computer (free hosting site, can’t ask for more of what I’d like) – there’s usually a very deep message or story behind it all once all 3 parts are being seen/heard/read together and in the design in which I post it.

    Truly wonderful blog, I’m glad that you found me, which lead me to finding you. And hey, yes, that is a short and sweet list of 10 that most people will tend to read over a lengthier post, and they were all the foundation of true perception, but oh boy, I could see you and I turning that into a book sized list hehe.

    Nice to come across you Ray. Blessing, Light & Love your way. Kimberly

    1. Kimberly, it’s so great to connect! I love that you post the affirmations in the shape of a tree and that you’ve come to embody them beyond the words. I look forward to your deep messages! Be well! Ray
