Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


PESSIMISM



“Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two evils, chooses both.”


—Oscar Wilde

Today I am able to see how I was always looking on the “gloomy” side of life. The glass was always half empty! I can remember thinking that nothing good was ever going to happen, life was to be endured, everybody had a price and people were all selfishly out for themselves.

I projected onto others my own sickness, my own despair, my own pessimism. It was a suicidal existence. Today I choose to be a positive and creative person who refuses to be surrounded by negativism. My attitude in life makes all the difference to my enjoyment of life. Today my glass is more than half full and I am happy.

In the gift of choice, I recognize my potential joy.
