What Optimism doesn’t mean

«Optimism does not mean continual happiness, glazed eyes and a fixed grin. When I talk about the desirability of optimismPhilippa Perry I do not mean that we should delude ourselves about reality. But practicing optimism does mean focusing more on the positive fall-out of an event than on the negative. … I am not advocating the kind of optimism that means you blow all your savings on a horse running at a hundred to one; I am talking about being optimistic enough to sow some seeds in the hope that some of them will germinate and grow into flowers.» Philippa Perry in «How to stay sane»
