The Realist

by Deanna



“The pessimist complains about the wind;
 the optimist expects it to change; 
the realist adjusts the sails.”
 ~ William A. Ward

Yes! To the picture and to the quote. Going to commit this one to memory! It's good every day advice.

I always love a good sailing image! And I've certainly internalized that advice over the years -- having lived it. Lovely, Deanna.

Wonderful quote and perfect, summery photo to go with it. I think I am an optimistic realist...adjusting the sails while hoping the wind will change! :-)
