Try On Some Rose-Colored Glasses

You must know one of those insufferable optimists, right? The ones who never see the downside of anything, who think the whole world is wonderful all of the time?

How annoying.

We have a rather insulting way to describe those people. We say they're "looking at the world through rose-colored glasses."

And yet, aren't those people happier than most?

Try it for a day. See the world in positive terms, as though wearing rose-colored glasses. That grumpy guy at the desk next to yours? Picture him laughing. The nagging boss? He's a cheerleader! All that traffic? A chance to reflect. Your newspaper didn't arrive? No news is good news!

So put on your rose-colored glasses, if only for a day. See everything in positive terms.

You'll be happier.
