When I was a little girl, I was surrounded by uneasy and bothersome atmosphere. I lived with my grandparents and my mother, and all of them liked to say that their life was bad, poor and not the one they would like to live. They were constantly complaining about the life level, politicians, low salaries, health, etc. I, being an open-minded child, didn’t understand them. And I still don’t.

Everything that happens in our lives is for the better, I am sure. That hectic environment of my childhood was also beneficial for me. At that time I was so indignant with my relatives’ attitude to life that I decided not to behave in the same way ever. And I didn’t. Somehow I succeed to translate my childhood promises into actions and they still decide a lot of my present decisions and traits of character.

Now I can always find something interesting and unusual for me whatever I do. It is so exciting, I must say. I walk along the street and look at different people, spotting some interesting features, listening to birds singing and observing buildings’ architecture. And I am always fascinated by everything I see. Our life gives us so many opportunities and chances I am thankful each day of my life for. I always try to spot each of them and use to the fullest extent.

I am absolutely sure that all the good things that happen to me every day occur in my life due to my optimism and energy. Whenever I start to speak about some recent events from my life with friends, they are so fascinated. And that is the moment that I understand that my optimism is one of the most precious features that I have and I should develop it more and more to have even more interesting life.
