Optimism is not a thing of idiots

I invite you to reflect together on the decision to be optimistic. A decision that we can make every moment, in every situation and every day.

As we are

They say that  Argentines  have a certain  tango  bitterness in our blood. A melancholic  bandoneon pessimism  that accompanies us like a ghost so we live in the heart of Caballito or in the troubled streets of Beijing. But there are labels that should already be prescribed. It's time to free ourselves from that bitter legacy and declare: “I'm Argentine and I'm optimistic, so what?I invite you to reflect together on the decision to be optimistic. A decision that we can make every moment, in every situation and every day.

But first, we should clarify that there are  two types of optimism , the  fool and the  smart . Optimism is intelligent when it does not deny the existence of problems; it is  smart  when it accepts and faces problems always keeping one foot in reality. On the other hand, optimism can be superficial if it clings to an ideal, static world. Optimism can say that it is  silly  when he lives in utopia, in the ideal, but not when he gets into the mud to give the necessary battles. That's why, optimists, to the mud with a smile on your soul!

I declare myself an  Argentine woman  optimistic. I choose optimism as a philosophy of life. I think it makes life a wide, exciting, bright setting where we can all make our dreams come true. No matter what situation or pain one has gone through, optimism is a balm that calms everything, everything turns lovingly and allows us to always live on the brightest side of life, no matter what happens.

I choose optimism because it allows me to see in every situation a life lesson rather than a threat or a mistake made.

I choose to be optimistic because I discovered that it does very well to my health and will allow me a life with more happiness. So, thinking about a long life, I choose to eat better, breathe better, rest more, get away from situations and people who intoxicate me.

I choose to be optimistic because it is the best superpower to be  friends with my friends , mother of my son, leader of my work team and to maintain, as time goes on, a loving contact with the people I love.

I choose to be optimistic because it is my way of reinforcing my belief that humanity will find its way not to extinguish or extinguish our planet.

I choose to be optimistic because I already found that whenever it rained, it really always stopped and that allows me to know for sure that the next storm is also going to be fleeting.

I choose to be optimistic because it allows me to look with compassion at those abusive, paranoid and aggressive people who arm their own hells in their minds and inhabit them.

And finally I choose to be optimistic because as an  Argentine woman  I feel that  tanguera  melancholy does not represent me, no tell my story or mark my destiny. Surely not yours either.
