Looking life in a positive manner; seeming something in a desirable and better way; expectations and hopefulness about something

Etymology:

  • Eyeglasses are easily available in any color but the significance of the color of roses can’t be neglected. During the mid of 19th, people used a phrase “looking at the world through rose-colored spectacles” to describe someone who’s looking at everything or every place in a positive manner and expects everything good about it. Now the word spectacles are altered with glasses and rest of the meaning of the phrase is same. It certainly would be great if the world is viewed through Rose colored glasses.
