Choosing Rational Optimism
✨ On Rational Optimism ✨
It’s that time of the year. The time to wind down, reflect on the past year, and think about how to stay sane in the next year. And watch lots of Harry Potter / Lord of the Rings / Home Alone. Otherwise known as December.
And during this time, if there’s one little thing that I can contribute to your process, it’s this: to choose rational optimism.
Rational optimism is about having a realistic picture of the current picture while maintaining a positive outlook for the future. It’s about holding to polarities with both hands. Let’s be honest, the current reality isn’t sunshine and rainbows. Yes, we have a lot to be grateful about but it’s also been a tough year too with no tangible end in sight with the spread of new variants and restrictions. And yet… the future is brighter than ever, if we allow ourselves to truly believe it. Because what we choose to focus on and the little steps we take each day towards that better future are the things that really matter.
So make next year a tiny bit better than this year with rational optimism. Make that your goal. Find ways to improve your health (mental, physical, spiritual), your important relationships (incl. with yourself), your work impact, and your contribution to others. One foot in front of the other, y’all.
