Recently, my daughter told me something that really made me pause. She said, "Optimism is life-changing." The phrase really made me stop and think. I've always considered myself an optimist, trying to look for the good in others, myself, and in the things going on around me.

But life-changing?

ABSOLUTELY!! Why? Because of the power of positive thinking. I'm a firm believer in if you believe something bad will happen--it does. If you believe something great will happen--it will!

I've set aside some writing goals. With hard work, lots of planning, and the support of my family, I will achieve those goals, too. I'm going to continue to wrap myself in my optimism and BELIEVE!

What do you believe? Are you an optimist? Are you ready to change your life?

Totally...absolutely...I BELIEVE in the magic of optimism.

If we don’t have faith, hope, and love, what’s left?

You daughter sounds brilliant! A pat on the back for her!

There is definitely power in positive thinking! sometimes all it takes is just the change of a word or two to make the switch to optimism. And who knows where that change will take you!

Kids are so smart. Before Eve Savage was published, she thought of herself as a 'housewife'. Then one day her daughter introduced her at school as a 'writer'. Eve never looked back.

You both have great kids!
