Is being optimistic good and should not
be based on unwarranted
looses it power
and science has proved it
Is it best to be a pessimist some of the time, specially when we get older? The folks who are positive and pay attention and then get more pessimistic in old age live the longest say the scientists.
My opinion is we shouldn’t expect much, then it will be hard to be disappointed and then we can or may be surprised by the richness of old age. Meditation aids mindfulness. Mindfulness brings a more vivid experience.
