I’m considering today what makes some people so optimistic and resilient despite the most difficult circumstances.

In my life I have had the pleasure of the company of a few very good folks, who despite physical, financial and emotional pain and difficulties remain the most happy, upbeat and positive people.

In the face of adversity some people have the courage to not only keep going but to laugh, make jokes, encourage others with a smile.

These folks inspire me.

It is these people I aspire to be more like.

This resilience, this determination, strength and optimism I admire.

This courage.

This belief.

And I am so grateful for having these people in my life.
