The journey that each human being makes through earthly existence can have hardship as often as it is touched by joy. When we encounter adversity, the stress we feel can erode our optimism, eventually convincing us that the issues we face cannot be overcome. In truth, there is no situation so dire, no challenge so great, and no choice so bewildering that it cannot be overcome.

I can understand when all is going well in someone’s life that of course, all you can do is smile. But how about when things are going not so well, and maybe pretty bad, how can people muster up the ability to be and stay positive?
