Had been dealing with depression recently due to many unseen challenges for which we happen to fight within ourselves and over a period feel dejected, hopeless and depressed with every aspect of life. Lot of advises of being optimistic did inspire but what really pulls us out is the introspection within ourselves.

Though there were few moments which filled me with optimism when I found the will to vacate our premises unable to deal with a troublesome owner, dirty neighbours and an unaffordable locality, as at that moment, I felt, it was the right thing to do.

But there was a moment that filled me with hope one fine morning when found the where there are multiple options that filled me with optimism too and this is what exactly I felt:


I see light up there
through the paltry opening
As if rays of hope
Shimmering with the sunshine
the darkest hours are gone
feel God arising
And I bow thy lord
As i witness

this miracle happening
Now my wait to feel
the first sunlight ends
And am blessed with
the light
tearing the sky apart
to merge with my soul
I feel like making
a wish now
“may there be
light and only light
in our bountiful lives

which fills up

all the ignorance”

Interestingly, Hope itself is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one’s life. It gives us a desire with anticipation.

And since Optimism is a mental attitude and that interprets situations and events as being best (optimized), so that in some way that may not be fully comprehended the present moment is in an optimum state. The concept is extended to include the hope that future conditions will unfold as optimal.

But broadly optimism is the understanding that all of nature – past, present and future – operates by laws of optimization. This understanding leads to a state of mind that believes everything is as it should be, and that the future will be as well.

But yes, though it is ones state of mind which can really fill up Hope and to be optimistic, we need to find a solution from within and then we can easily find ways in this world which could positively help us out.

So quickly find a solution for your worries and fill them with optimism. After all “God helps those who help themselves”. Isn’t it?
