Are you a person who is inclined to see the brighter side of things, even in dire situations? Or do you oftentimes tip to the other side and wallow in negativity?
No matter which category we fall into — pessimist or optimist, we all want to experience the life we’ve dreamed of and continuously strive to achieve. But life is volatile.

Bracing ourselves for all challenging circumstances, and having the ability to see their sometimes hidden beauty, can help to propel us forward, despite the setbacks.
