    I Just Love This Quote.

    I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. Rabindranath Tagore

    Being Optimistic

    seems to make life easier for me.  I have been through a lot of stuff.  There were times when I wanted to just give up, but I didn't.  We all have challenges that are thrown at us.  It's how you deal with them that matters.  If you're optimistic it's...

    I Used to Be Extremely Optimistic

    It came naturally to me - I had a great childhood, an amazing college experience and I started out well early in my career.  As I've gotten a little older - I've let the world start to drag me down.  I'm still faithfully optimistic - but some doubt has entered.  It...

    Not One To Dwell On The Negative

    People who know me a little often take my dark sense of humor to mean I'm a pessimist but those who know me well realize I'm more of an optimist with a very strong awareness that it's silly to expect either one, life is more complicated than that. I'll make the best of almost any...

    Try Being the Key Word

    Being optimistic can be hard.  Life gets in the way sometimes.  But, if you tell yourself it will get better, it just might happen.  That is what I believe anyway.  Words have power.
