    Where I come from we have a phrase "dumb luck". Something my pappy always said I had. Somehow those of us too busy with things like butterflies and how a stick flows down a stream just kind of get taken care of out here in the cosmos. We will tell you what shape a cloud is, and step right into a pile of horse manure and there stuck to our feet will be a diamond.

    No there is nothing special about this quality. But for some reason not seeing and being in apparent travesty of the world we are able to find the good in things others miss.

    This is truly not something we look for or wish to be. It is like the color and smell after a good clean rain -- it just is.

      Sundeep, like empathy, optimism probably exists in all of us. But somehow those two qualities flourish in some and wilt in others. Probably a combination of nurture and nature. And for many it is a roller coaster unless accepted.

    For me, it is being patient. I see many people who are so impatient when driving, waiting in line, and in a hurry...causes anxiety, high blood pressure, and negativity in your body...who needs that!

    Diligence. It has really been a key factor throughout my life. Sometimes things would just be easier if I just followed the pack and give in, but then, I wouldn't really be me. I'd just be the version of me that everyone else wishes to see. Through diligence I find strength. I'm grateful for that.

      Thanks MysticMoonlight. That is a great quality worth developing - if not there.

    Having a great sense of humor.
    Oftentimes I say, "If I didn't have a sense of humor I wouldn't have any sense at all."
    Whenever life throws me a curve I often say to myself; "In a year you will be laughing at this." Just saying that statement alone helps to remind me that whatever I am dealing with is temporary. It helps me keep things in perspective. It's so easy to get swallowed up in the moment and that can cause many people to want to give up. Acknowledging the world has not come to an end is the first step in getting through a crisis.

      I agree, this has help me too. Sometimes bad things happen and you just have to laugh and get through it.
