    "When our lives are entrusted to God, and we live in His presence daily, we discover that trust in God dispels our fears and anxieties, and provides us peace, joy, and optimism in their place."

    by Dr. Ed Jordan, pastor of Gwynn’s Island Baptist Church

    “A person’s mind, heart and body are all interconnected and interdependent in what can be termed ‘the mind-heart-body-connection,’” said Glenn N. Levine, M.D., FAHA, master clinician and professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, chief of the cardiology section at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, both in Houston, and chair of the writing committee for the Scientific Statement. “Research has clearly demonstrated that negative psychological factors, personality traits and mental health disorders can negatively impact cardiovascular health. On the other hand, studies have found positive psychological attributes are associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality.”

    Tonight I’m going back, I’m going back, I’m going back to where I belong

    Ayai oh I’ve wandered from dusk until dawn

    But tonight I’m going back

    I’m leaving all my troubles underneath my feet

    Feeling stronger now that I have grown

    Lay my armor and show what is underneath

    I’m not hiding myself anymore

    Like a ship at sea

    Where am I going

    Waves crash on me

    A light is showing

    Like a ship at sea

    Where am I going

    Back to where I belong

    "To be optimistic is a proactive decision, made and maintained throughout life.  It is more than just a way of looking at the world, optimism unlocks the ability to act, gives people the belief in a better future and the courage to pursue it. It is important to note that experts say that genuine optimism is not divorced from the realities of life, it takes into account negative situations and supports persistence and resilience against them."

    Nick Carney's Optimistic View on The Future of Cities 

    "For #infrastructure projects, you really have to have #optimism and push forward because they're very challenging but, in the end, the impact on people's lives is lasting."
    Nicholas Carney

    Nicholas Carney, a leading infrastructure lawyer, joined Victor Perton in The Centre for Optimism's Optimism Cafe in a very #optimistic conversation about the future of #cities and infrastructure. Nick Carney is a partner in the global firm Herbert Smith Freehills.
