From Alice in Wonderland, “For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.” Alice was developing the right kind of thinking. When we get get stymied or stuck and can’t figure something out, it doesn’t mean our situation is impossible. It means that we have found the right solution. It means we have to continue searching. That’s the way it is with most things in life. Sometimes we have to set things aside and give our mind a chance to work on the problem while we’re working on something else. Keep going back to it, you’ll get it right. Remember that failure is only final when we quit.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
