You know, I really am not just a Pollyanna-type optimist. As a matter of fact, I subscribe to one philosophy that I learned from one of my favorite teachers, Joan Borysenko.
In an article years ago on Oprah.com, Joan shared this: My favorite quote is by the mysterious William Arthur Ward, whom Google does not identify: “The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”
I try to be an optimistic realist.
Luckily I had another teacher also, a Dad who taught me when I was very young how to Bloom Where I am Planted and that’s never left me. It has served me pretty well during this pandemic.
Here are a couple of Spirit Lifters for today, worth the time to view and enjoy. I learned a lot from both.
And this one from a Beach I frequented while growing up.
