The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)

Currently the consensus is that there is a large genetic component in the optimism/pessimism spectrum. My TFD horoscope tells me "Don't hesitate to dive into whatever project or situation suits your fancy today. Your luck will make you victorious in whatever game you choose. Happiness is almost inevitable." Doubt it somehow.

Looking-glass, window glass, sandglass, glass of wine - whatever you choose or whatever choice forced upon you.

Congratulations, Pedro, on being almost guaranteed happiness today. I hope it is a good day for you, no matter what.

You know it’s a beautiful day when even the cacophony of a crow sounds like the sweet song of a robin. But if it ruins even a beautiful day, you are depressed.
