optimist | ˈɒptɪmɪst |
1 a person who tends to be hopeful and confident about the future or the success of something: only an eternal optimist could expect success.
2 Philosophy a person who believes that this world is the best of all possible worlds or that good must ultimately prevail over evil.
Optimism, hope and positivity are such precious things. Every day I see people that are slaves to the machine. Commuting every day to a job that they spend more time at than they do at home, yet hate every second of it because that’s what society expects of them. Like lambs to the slaughter, they don’t think for themselves, they don’t present any sign of individualism. Each person gets lost in a sea of grey, dashed with red and blue. Looking, acting & feeling the same. Trapped.
Every so often someone comes through that gives you hope. They are authentic, they are happy, they are different. They don’t follow the crowd, they stand out, whether it be through looks, personality, behaviour.
It’s these people that I gravitate towards, to be a force for good. Together we create this community of hope, of optimism that life is better beyond the grey.
There is always hope beyond what you can see.
