Episode 90 comes to you from sunny Andalucia, Spain. Today we’re talking about cultivating optimism, especially when bad things happen.
For myself I am an optimist – it does not seem to be much use to be anything else.” ~ Winston Churchill
Are you an optimist? Do you look at each new experience as something that will turn out well in the end? This week we’re sharing our own thoughts on the subject as well as which of us is the optimist and which is the “realist”. You’ll discover how looking on the bright side of life has brought us more happiness and enabled us to embrace the life of our dreams.
Our guest today survived a heart attack and subsequently changed her approach to life. Edie Weinstein is a journalist, speaker, licensed social worker, interfaith minister, radio host and the author of The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into The Extraordinary. Found out more about her life as an “opti-mytic” at LiveinJoy.org.
