The true definition of optimism

 Even though it's been a bit darker and certainly wetter than usual this year,
here in Portland. . .

. . .the vegetable garden we put in seems to be doing okay. 

This morning, I referred to a book form of  The American College Dictionary,
rather than an online reference, to find the definition of the word: 'optimism'.
What I found was:

1. Disposition to hope for the best; tendency to look on the bright side of things.
2. the belief that good ultimately predominates over evil in the world. 
3. the doctrine that the existing world is the best of all possible worlds.
4. the belief that goodness pervades reality

A recurring theme throughout my life.
