Despite her own hardships, Helen Keller wrote extensively about seeing positivity in the world. Her essay on Optimism, written in 1903, is well worth a read. Here’s a quote to get you started:

Martin Seligman is known as the father of Positive Psychology. He has written several books on optimism and happiness. I found his book ‘Learned Optimism’ particularly helpful as a learning tool during a turning point in my life.
Remember, there’s no such thing as half full or half empty … our cup is always FULL of hope and possibility.
As always, be brave, think big, stand tall.
