Last year, for his 68 birthday, Kevin Kelly shared 68 unsolicited advice on his blog. 68 years of experience condensed in a single article! Among all of these advices, one resonated with me specifically: « Over the long term, the future is decided by optimists ». I want to agree with this statement and I would go further: I strongly believe your degree of happiness will depend on how you want to perceive life and how you react to positive and negative events. Life is not always perfect, fair or easy and that is not something you can control anyway. However, you have full control over your perception and your reactions. Being positive and optimistic is a choice. Sure, we all have different past stories and experiences but, hoping for the best is the only first step to make great things happen.
