Welcome to The Art of Optimism! A dear friend was known for saying, Love you big as the sky. I'm passing along big-as-the-sky love to you as supportive ideas, over-the-top optimism and encouraging art straight from my heart. Encouragement is how we love ourselves and others. I hope in your own way you pass encouragement on too!
Recipe From the Encouragement Cafe: 1. Listen carefully to what your heart tells you. You and only you are responsible for your life. 2. Cultivate wisdom from your previous life experiences. What has worked well for you? What has been a disaster? Most importantly, what have you learned? 3. Through reflection, quiet, journaling, research, and conversation with others, develop a clear image of your dream. 4. Become aware of the attitudes and beliefs that support or limit your actions. Challenge limiting beliefs. 5. Surround yourself with a nurturing encouraging network of friends. Share your dreams with them. 6. Select and cultivate experiences that move you closer to your goals. 7. Maintain an open attitude that allows the unexpected to support you in achieving your dream. 8. Look for the hidden treasure in failure and setbacks. 9. Never give up. 10. Pass it on. This is your journey. Make the most of it.
