The power of optimism
Hello sweethearts. Today’s look was inspired by this super cute necklace. I love green, but the first thing that caught my attention was the name of the necklace “The optimistic”. Immediately, I began to think seriously about optimism and how important it is in our lives.
We have all had to deal with disappointments, deceptions, betrayal in love, unrequited love and job loss, deaths of family members, friends, neighbors, colleagues and so on. But the ability to stand and endure the onslaught of life is a continuous testimony to our optimism, and our will and need to succeed in life.
Optimism is the ability to see things positively whatever the circumstances. When everything goes as we wish we are all automatically optimistic, of course. We lose the fear of losing, of not being able to succeed or making certain things happen. Our positive results reinforce this belief that we can achieve even more.
But optimism is not just the ability to see things positively when things run smoothly. Optimism is above all the ability to see things positively even when they do not go the way it was intended.
It was in one of the darkest moments of her life that Melissa, the designer of the necklace, was able to build up the strength to turn the most difficult period of her life into something positive. From this period, something wonderful, a line of handmade jewelry came up.
Inspired by her story I could not help but think of some of the difficult times of my life and how optimism was fundamental to overcome them.
The combination of the pieces chosen today was an attempt to represent the relationship between optimism and pessimism, “One moment we are happy, next we are sad.” The green necklace symbolizes hope (optimism). I combined it with this beautiful black coat that represents obscurity (pessimism), symbolizing that from the dark something wonderful can be born. That despite the adverse conditions that life brings us, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I added the boots to give that fashionable touch in the look.
I hope you have enjoyed it and do not forget to dream and always fight for the fulfillment of your dreams. Whatever the circumstances, always be optimistic.
