Wanda, so many exciting things to discuss, we can’t wait. Thanks for joining us and we appreciate you sharing your wisdom with our readers. So, maybe we can start by discussing optimism and where your optimism comes from?
My optimism is deeply rooted in a combination of factors that empower and uplift me daily. First and foremost, sticking to my values provides a strong foundation for positivity. I believe in staying true to what matters most to me, and that fuels my optimism even during challenging times. Following my purpose is another driving force behind my optimism. Knowing that I’m aligned with my passion and life’s mission fills me with hope and excitement for the future.
Gratitude plays a significant role in nurturing my optimistic outlook. I make a conscious effort to appreciate all the little things in life, finding joy in everyday moments and expressing gratitude for the blessings I have.
Allowing myself to pursue what I love is incredibly empowering. Engaging in activities and hobbies that bring me joy brings a sense of fulfillment and optimism for the possibilities that lie ahead.
Toxic behaviors and negativity can drain one’s optimism, so I actively distance myself from such influences. Maintaining a positive and healthy environment is crucial to fostering my optimistic mindset.
Meditation is a valuable practice that helps me find inner peace and clarity. Taking moments to center myself allows me to approach challenges with a clear and optimistic perspective.
I also prioritize nourishing my body with healthy foods, as I believe in the profound connection between physical well-being and mental positivity.
Being open and always ready to help others brings a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Making a positive impact on someone’s life reaffirms my belief in the power of kindness and compassion.
Overall, my optimism is a product of the conscious choices I make every day. By cultivating positivity through these practices, I embrace life with hope, enthusiasm, and a belief in the potential for a bright future.
Let’s take a small detour – maybe you can share a bit about yourself before we dive back into some of the other questions we had for you?
