There’s nothing worse than feeling completely hopeless. Maybe it has to do with your career, finances, relationships, happiness–whatever the case may be. This quote, by Harvey Mackay, reminds us that life is a bumpy road. Nevertheless, the road leads us somewhere. An optimist knows that there will be hills and valleys on the road to various destinations. So those low points aren’t going to last forever. Not only that, it’s only by experiencing the valleys (the low points) that we can appreciate the view from the hills; and we better appreciate the journey we took to get there.
