The Magic of Optimism

I couldn’t resist sharing this link with you!  If you need a little inspiration, you’ll find it here.

108 year-old concentration camp survivor, Alice Herz Sommer, shares the magic of optimism in an interview with Tony Robbins.  Alice wrote her memoir at the age of 104:  A Garden of Eden in Hell: The Life of Alice Herz-Sommer.  Her motto:  “Everything is a present.”

  2. Thank you, Jean. I’m glad it was meaningful to you! If laughing can get us to 108, it seems like the perfect medicine.

    This is the most beautiful, life affirming message. I have made so many changes in my life recently and her words reflect to me that yes, a light filled path is absolutely divine and external truly has no bearing on that:)
