It’s easy to be an optimist when everything is going well.

When you’re on top of the world and the view is clear, you can puff your chest out and feel good about life.

But what about when you’re in the valley?

When you’ve just lost your job?

When you’re health is a constant battle?

When you pray and pray and pray, but can’t get an answer?

When others seem to have it all together, but life is still a struggle?

If you can keep your chin up during the hard times, you’ve earned the right to be called an optimist.
