Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition. Bernard Beckett

For this exercise, I’ve chosen to share the beautiful double rainbow I saw a week ago. It showed up after a heavy rainfall and took up an immense expanse of the sky. It was so breathtaking that I pulled off the road to capture it. First from inside the car, then when others pulled up to do same, I stepped out and took a few more. My only regret is that I didn’t have my DSLR camera with me so the shots you see are from my smartphone camera. I chose the rainbow because it is a symbol of optimism and hope. As the colder weather settles in, and we prepare for a major snowstorm tomorrow, the rainbow and all its vibrant colors will stay close to my heart and mind’s eyes. I hope the predictions won’t be as bad tomorrow… Stay warm!

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough. Richard M. DeVos

Hello all! I hope your weekend will be filled with optimism and joy. if you have any doubts, stop by and check out my double rainbow images and remind yourself to go with the flow…

My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme – OPTIMISTIC – below.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: OPTIMISTIC – This week show us something you’re optimistic about, or perhaps a talisman that helps you stay positive and hopeful, regardless of what life (and the weather!) throws your way.
