Rosiness or Gloomy Gray: On Viewing the World (5 paragraph)

Rosiness is not a worse windowpane than gloomy gray when viewing the world.

-Grace Paley: What do you gain when you choose to look on the bright side, when you choose to expect the best instead of the worst? Looking at the bright side of things helps us perceive the thing that we do.


There are many quotes that have many different kinds of meanings.  Do you wonder “what does that quote mean?”, well I am here to explain it to you. I chose the first quote by Grace Paley she is an American author, poet, writer, political activist, and a teacher. She made different kinds of quotes and writes books. In every poem and quotes I have read there are many meanings that it has, like the Road not Taken, and Annabel Lee, which are my favorites. “Well, do you wonder what meaning this quote has?”, I have an explanation to give you right now.

This quote by Grace Paley has a whole lot of different meaning to it. It also helps us understand different kinds of meanings for this quote. The first that I am going to be mentioning is the term rosiness, it means that just by looking at the positive or bright side of things does not mean that it will help us to look at the positive things around us makes us be a happy person and expecting the worst possible thing on something will just drag you down.  Having positive thinking helps us see nature more and notice many different kinds of decisions we have made in life.

Positive thinking empowers you and makes you feel stronger and more confident. Positive thinking has strong effects on your personality, health, level of energy, and your creativity. The more positive and optimistic you are, the happier you will be in life. In fact, positive thinking is the key to a longer life, scientists have found. According to an article, I have read. Positive thinking often starts with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of a lack of information. If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you’re likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking.

It’s unclear why people who engage in positive thinking experience these health benefits. One theory is that having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on your body. It’s also thought that positive and optimistic people tend to live healthier lifestyles, they get more physical activity, follow a healthier diet, and don’t smoke or drink alcohol in excess.

We can understand that the research is clear. It really does pay to be positive and the benefits include enhanced health and longevity, happiness, career advancement, athletic performance, team building, and financial success. Being positive is not just a nice way to live. It’s the way to live. If we always look on the bright side of things it helps us understand more the things around us. We can conclude that negative thinking is going to affect us negatively too. Looking for the bright side of every decision you made makes you feel relieved and makes us understand the new ways of making a decision.
