So far, we looked at what matters from how we experience the loss of it. However, when we live with optimism then we live our lives without having quite so much that matters to us.

Does that make us uncaring? No, it means that we appreciate all we have around us without attaching to the fear that its loss might diminish us.

When we create an attitude of thankfulness for all that fills our world, we live in optimism and joy. We don’t fear loss. We anticipate more and more being available to us. This is about creating the life we want. We don’t fear life happening to us.

Which do you do?
