Why not see the glass as half full instead of half empty?

A pessimist is one who feels bad when he feels good, for fear he'll feel worse when he feels better.

**********


 

Now isn't that a true account of a pessimist. 

Lets all put on our optimistic hat and be extremely positive about everything we do today.

Some of us need constant reminders to have a positive attitude.  It is so easy to slip into a negative mood.


Have an outstanding week and be sure to have your camera in hand when you are out and about.

I consider myself a realist, often confused with a pessimist...but today, I will be an optimist just for you!

I love Sharon's comment Debbie, it is so true.  I'm pretty optimistic most of the time.

That Sharon is on top of things Debb..........so here's how it is with me.  All my life, I've been called a pessimist.  Why?  Most people don't get me.  I consider myself a "realistic optimist"..........I don't walk around with my head up my butt and looking at the world through rose colored glasses.  I see things as they are, some good, some bad, but try to find the good in everything by staying realistic.  Make sense?  It does to me.  Not sure why it took me so long to say that this morning.

You are so right Roy...........thanks for stopping by today.

Damn, I knew there was a very good reason I clicked with you MM and think you are so fabulous, I'm the same way.  Many people think I'm a pessimist because in reality, I am a "realist", just like you!  We rock!  LOL.  Just keep being who you are, I love it!

Do you need to "shake it up" or start from scratch?
