The Optimist

There is a story of identical twins. One was a hope-filled optimist. “Everything is coming up roses!” The other was a sad and hopeless pessimist.

He thought that Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law, was an optimist. The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist.

He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins’ personalities.

“On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure”.

The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.

When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining,

“I don’t like the color of this computer…I’ll bet this calculator will break…I don’t like this game…I know someone who’s got a bigger toy car than this…”

Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air. He was giggling.

“You can’t fool me! Where there’s this much manure, there’s gotta be a pony!”

  1. Such a sweet story!

  2. Dear Billie,
    Wow, this was so meaningful to me. While talking to my mom on the phone this morning, we were reflecting on how positive we should be and I told her about your post. She loved the story as well. I am convinced that when we react positively to life events, we give ourselves the chance to learn with the experiences. Learn, Love, Laugh and Love. This is the motto. It is a process, I know…. but we need to exercise being positive towards life. Once we realise how it works, things become so much easier. Quoting that song…”the experience of survival is the key to the gravity of love…”!
    Thank you for the inspiration and for giving us food for thought!

    All the best,

      It is wonderful to hear of this message inspired not only you but your mother. It’s not always easy to look on the good side of life, but our mission in this life is to try to always be positive and filled with light. I loved the videos you posted as well and will probably share it on facebook.
      I’m so glad that things are turning around for the better in your life. I always keep you in my prayers.
