I’m an optimist.
It’s one of the defining characteristics of my personality.
My optimism is rooted in a belief that I can achieve great things and make a difference in the world.
I’m a believer in optimism and in having the courage to change the world, no matter how small.
So I thought I’d share my story.
I learned to embrace optimism as a way to live and work, and I’m grateful for the life lessons that came along with it.
I grew up in a time when we were constantly bombarded by news about our environment, and the fear of what it could do to us and our families.
When I was growing up, I saw my parents fight with each other about the safety of their home.
They were always worried about how the weather was, about how they were going to feed their family.
I was constantly thinking, What if something bad happens?
What if my dad doesn’t get home from work?
What about my mom?
They constantly talked about their homes being in danger and what the next day might bring.
It was the constant worry, not just about their home, but about what they were doing and what they would do if something happened.
That fear and anxiety permeated my daily life.
I started to get the message, “Hey, we don’t have to worry about everything.
We can still make the world better, and if you’re willing to work hard and keep going, you can make your home and your life better.”
That’s when I started thinking about things in a more positive light.
I found myself having more faith in myself and in my abilities to achieve things, rather than the fear and doubt that had gripped me for so long.
In retrospect, that’s how I learned how to live my life.
Now, almost a decade later, I live my success and happiness in the most optimistic way possible.
As a result, I’m not just a mom of three, but a mom who works full-time.
I work full-hour days with little to no breaks.
I enjoy spending time with my kids, my wife, my husband and my family.
If it weren’t for all the positive things I’ve accomplished, I would never have been able to get married.
As I write this, my son is still only three months old.
He has a great future ahead of him.
He is very curious and playful.
I also have three wonderful daughters who I adore dearly and I am so thankful for the time I have given them.
It has been an amazing ride, and these last few years have been incredible.
But I’m still here, and my journey continues.
